The main damage to the table was that the flat bar knee braces on the legs were terribly bent up and really weren't strong enough for the job. So, we bought some small (3/4" x 3/4") angle and made new knee braces.

In addition to making the new braces, we added hardwood reinforcements under the table top where the particle board had cracked.
We didn't actually put everything together until after I returned from England in late October.
