Cigarette Burns on a Wood Table

I've been given a pine dining table but there are several cigarette burns on it. Someone has tried to remove them with sandpaper, but this has only lifted the varnish. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I could repair this?

Cigarette Burns on Wood Table

It sounds like you're going to have to sand out and refinish the entire top of the table. That's no big deal. If you prefer to not go through that yet, you might try this, with a paintbrush lightly stroke a little bleach onto the burns. It should lighten them some. Then use clean steel wool and stroke the burn marks in the direction of the grain. Again, it should lighten and make them less noticeable. If you want perfection, use Danish Oil Stain a shade darker than the original color. Apply it as per directions to a completely sanded top. Burn marks are burn marks, damage. They also add character. Appreciate you table as it is? (04/14/2009)

Cigarette Burns on a Wood Table

I have been in some stores lately and they sell like a crayons, but they are for wood. It is to color in spots. Maybe you could sand out the marks and then color them back in. Look in furniture departments. (04/18/2009)
