How to Fix Scratches in Wooden Furniture

There are several ways to deal with a scratch in your wooden furniture.

1. A surface scratch can be camouflaged with a marker in a color that closely matches the color of your wood. Such special markers can be found in a hardware store, or in the hardware section of variety stores like Wal-Mart.

2. A scratch that is a little deeper than a surface scratch can likely be repaired with paste wax or even melting colored wax that matches the color of the furniture.

3. A very deep scratch, especially if it is very noticeable, will most likely require sanding with fine sand paper to level out the area, and then the area will need to be retained and resealed.
