    If you get a dreaded scratch,chip, or ding in your wood use brown wax shoe polish to touch it up. It works fine for me!

    I've also used Birchwood-Casey's Tru-Oil and a fine paint brush. Use the stock conditioners as a polishing compound. As far as a small dint; use a damp cloth and the tip of an iron. Be careful and take it slowly. Damp heat will expand the wood and will remove small dints. Darrell

    If the finish is in place the iron trick will not work. The water has to pass through the finish to the wood.

    Correct JerryP. Also, if the wood fibers are broken, the wet heat will not be nearly as effective. Dent impressions work well, but if the wood grain is broken, go with the filler method.

    I had a chipped finish, probably a spray-on on a shotgun. I removed the flaking material and used True Oil. I foprgot where I made the fix and now even I can't see where the problem was.
