sometimes i have removed marks as you describe by using denatured alcohol,and LIGHTLY wiping so as just to leave a whispy tail that evaporates quickly,it works well on heat marks (often look like water marks),some times it takes several applications,what it does is to clean the surface and open the finish ever so slightly so as to allow it to reclarify,worth tryingg before sand paper

Charles thanks will try this when i find it, funny was reading about this the other day, denatured alcohol for use with drying out greentimber, so was looking for the stuff. will try anything rather than going made with the rough stuff, its a bit to expensive bit of furniture and to highly a finish to do to much to so hope this might do the trick, was more what i was hoping for, thanks guys....i might just live a bit longer..LB

If your piece was finished with shellac, you could just take some shellac, of the proper color (or maybe just Blonde), and wipe some over the bad spot to get it looking as NEW!
