I scratched my wife's desk which is the color of cherry wood. Can anyone
tell me the names of those "markers" or "pens" that are used to fill in
the scratches, and are the same color as the wood? Also, where can I get
Since it is so difficult to match existing finishes, sanding out and
refinishing the entire piece is the recommend choice if the item is
not an antique. You can also take it to a refinisher to do the job.
Perhaps a product like Briwax will clean and hide the scratch but it
won't "fill" a gouge.
A real paint store, like where painters go, or a hardwood flooring
dealer, should be able to help you out. I know Bruce used to have
crayons in all their standard finishes.
Another option- I've had real good luck with minwax gel stain, making
old scratched wood furniture presentable. Just a dab on a paper towel,
and wipe over the scratch. Unless it is a big gouge, it just vanishes.
