This kind of superficial damage can be fixed quickly and easily without harming your furniture or your wallet. The easy repair techniques on the following pages will work on any clear finish—lacquer, varnish, polyurethane, or shellac. Shown: To conceal the many small scratches marring this tabletop, finish repair expert Michael Dresdner simply rubs on a coat of scratch cover, a pigmented furniture polish.
Applied with a clean rag, just like regular furniture polish, a single dose is enough to make most damage disappear. And then there are all the little scratches, dents, and divots that mysteriously appear on wood surfaces. Before tackling any repairs, clean the furniture thoroughly with a solution of dishwashing liquid or Murphy Oil Soap and water to remove all wax, grease, oil, or polish.
Once you've cleaned the piece, make repairs in this order: white water rings first, followed by minor surface scratches, deep scratches, and then dings and nicks.
