Scratches on a Rattan Dining Room Set

Someone just gave me a really nice Rattan Dining Room Set, but it has a lot of scratches, some very deep. Is there anything I can fill them in with? Someone suggested shoe polish but it seems to me like that might smear around when I use furniture polish on it. I am thinking of getting oen of those paint pens, but the deep scratches will still be there although not as visable. Any ideas?

Try sanding down the whole table filling the scratches with wood filler, staining, then waxing. (03/30/2006)

Just to make the scratches less noticeable - you can stain the scratch - using pens/shoe polish etc. Make sure you blend in the color, tho - Is it dark or light rattan? The dark stuff would be easier to cover scratches in. And then you could wax the rattan - although I think you have to get some water on it to keep it from cracking.... (03/31/2006)
