 Scratch removal in cherry furniture Hardwood

Somehow a hard dog chew stick found it's way under a fan on top of our solid cherry chest of drawers and scratched the heck out of it. Anyone know a good way to fix these kind of scratches? The scratches aren't real deep, but the cherry bungalow stain is gone and the raw wood is showing through. Hardwood, you're a furniture guy right? Help please! Do I need to sand it all down and refinish the top?

 Scratch removal in cherry furniture Hardwood

Kwschumm; Without seeing the piece or knowing the type of finish that's on it has me groping in the dark a bit, but I'll give you my thoughts. Try most anything to cover the scratches before you sand it off. As a piece of cherry ages it develops a pitina or darkens with age, that in it's self makes newly sanded cherry very difficult to match the color of aged cherry. We've in the past built a new pieces of cherry furniture to match sometning someone allready has and by far the most difficult part was trying to match the color to the aged piece without having the new piece end up far too dark as it ages. I'd check the yellow pages for refinish shops that have been in business a good long while and have them take a look at it. I'd sure try to repair what you have rather than sanding it off. Let me know how it turns out, I'm still not too old to learn something too. Frank.

Thanks, Frank. This piece is about 10 years old and has darkened to a gorgeous color. I'd hate for it to be mismatched with the rest. I'll look around for a good furniture repair guy.

If you take it to a good antique furniture refinisher he would gently hand buff out the scratches and make a homemade blend of stains to match and work in for desired darkness and depth of color. (or take a drawer to a good paint store that would computer match the stain) If it has a urethane finish, that is more difficult to match in terms of depth of gloss and clarity. That would usually need to be done on an entire section as in your case the "top". One or two coats over the reworked area and very lightly sanded/steel wool buffed and a final coat over the entire section. Laughing out loud

Ken, I am be NO means a furniture guy but after many years of moving around in the military and the "customary" scratches and dents that come with each move; we have had pretty decent luck with the wax furniture repair sticks if the scratches are not to extensive. There are a LOT of varying sades of furniture wax repair sticks to choose from and experiment with. I work the closest matching color I can find into each scratch and then gently buff over the area to remove as much of the excess as possible without removing the repair. It is not a professional grade repair but in most cases, I have found that it was a very good looking repair and difficult to tell where the original damage was at a glance. It was a bunch less cost wise than having it refinished. In most cases I would think that the least amount of disturbance of the orginal wood and finish would be the best route to follow. Just my 1.5 cents worth. ;o)
