Whenever I get light scratches on any of my wooden furniture I rob the wife's pantry and rub a walnut half over it. The oil from the walnut makes the scratches disappear. However, if it is a deep scratch you might want to phone around the hardware stores to see if they sell furniture-patching wax sticks. If they can't help you phone a furniture restorer to see if they will sell you one or tell you where you can get them. If all else fails try to match a kids crayon to the colour of the wood you are trying to fix. Rub the crayon over the scratch. The wax will fill the scratch and your scratch will not be seen. Polish the wood after you have done this, of course. mrgreen

You need the bit you eat. wink

You can buy packets of shelled walnuts in the baking section of your supermarket.
