Light Furniture Scratches
I have an expensive lacquer coffee table that that is scratched from moving stuff on it. Is there any way to remove these scratches, or to at least them appear less noticeable? I would appreciate a response ASAP.

Furniture lacquer is fairly close in finished properties to automotive paint. I would suggest going to your local auto parts store and getting some of the colored "crayons" used for scratch removal. You don't need an exact match to the color of your table, just something in the same color family and those scratches will be much less obvious. Use caution with the abrasive-type uncolored scratch removers, however. Those may do more damage to the lacquer, rather than fix the problem.Bob Zonis
