Scratch in teak dining table

houscrzyAugust 21, 2007

Hi--we have a teak dining table from the 1950s that I had refinished not long ago. Unfortunately, one of my kids put a good sized scratch in one end of it shortly after we refinished it. Then the house cleaner used some product that darkened the scratch and made it a lot more noticable (Pledge, maybe?)

Is there anything I can do short of refinishing the table again to make the scratch less noticable?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I depends on the extent of the damage. See the article below.

And please throw away the Pledge. It causes nightmares for refinishing and repairs.
