Thanks. It's really more of a scuff than a scratch. I tried Old English but it didn't work. How about Bona Power Plus?

I'll look into those sticks.

Now that you oiled it the finish will not stick.

You can try lightly rubbing it with a Mr clean magic sponge , then see if the ink pen will work ..

....or leave it as character. It's not bad enough that I'd worry much. As I said before, it shows a lived in look. More fixes you try may mean it can get either better or worse.

Highup, I think I will go that route. Thanks, Nick, and I appreciate the Emo Phillips joke!

I just noticed this section. It's annoying. I have a 2-part question.

1. Is this the polyurethane or the stain?
2. My handyman (of course) didn't leave me the can of Minwax stain, so I don't know the color. is there an easy way to come up with that?

Thanks.

Are you sure there is a stain put down or is it just the natural yellowing of the polyurethane? Those spots could be just a miss in the finish.

Not sure. It's only there in that one spot, and the job is about a year old...

I'm not a wood guy but to me that looks like yellow pine and just the yellowing of the urethane. I could be wrong but I've refinished a bunch of furniture back when and it looks like the urethane on natural wood.
