Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Very good for surface scratches
While the color matching is not perfect, these markers are good for hiding scratches to finished wood. I used it on an oak table and cherry cabinets (see pics) and it turned out very well. If you didn't know the scratches were there you wouldn't notice them. I have used the 'crayon' type sticks before to fill in deep scratches and chips but you really have to work the product in to get it to stick and it can be frustrating. These markers appear to be a better color match, just try them on an inconspicuous spot first to be sure.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hurwizzle Meh to OK
These colored permanent markers, branded as "Wood Furniture & FLoor Repair Markers," are very OK. The package comes with 6 wood-colored markers: Maple, Oak, Cherry, Walnut, Mahogany, and Espresso. Unfortunately, though, unless your wood furniture/flooring is exactly the same color as the markers, you'll be out of luck.
My initial reaction was to give these markers a 2/5 rating because the marker colors don't really match the wood I was using them on, but, from far away, they do blend in nicely. Up close, however, it's pretty obvious that I used a marker to cover up the scratches.
The instructions say to "apply to the damaged area," then "remove excess pigment with cloth," and finally "allow to dry before touching," but the ink from these markers dried so quickly on the wood that I wasn't able to remove any excess pigment and no ink came off on my fingers when I touched the marks immediately after application. For this reason, it's very important to make sure you apply the markers only to the scratches and not anywhere else on the piece.

This little kit comes with six markers, ranging from light (Maple) to very dark (Espresso). I had no problem mixing colors to fill in scratches on my table, blending multiple markers right on the table top, and completely covering problem areas. I reapplied in one area to cover a heavily damaged spot. Follow directions, keep a paper towel handy to wipe off excess and apply in small, thin strokes for best result. Easy to use, easy to store in the handy pouch.

These marker work great ONLY if your wood furniture color EXACTLY matches the color choices you have. I used the oak color (see photos below) on our oak table set after my wife accidentally gouged it. As you can see, "oak" doesn't necessarily mean your specific oak. Results on a couple of other darker pieces of furniture were okay but not great.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by snw1126 Nice idea
The marker does cover scratches but the tip is so wide that it is real difficult to get in to the scratch. Since the tip of the marker is so wide the ink that gets onto the wood is very difficult to get off and you end up with areas that look like a kid drew the furniture with a marker. I would advise using this only in places that aren't in plain view like the sides or legs of furniture.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mamajane1234 Not as good as I hoped
I had high hopes for this as I have several pieces of furniture that need touch ups. Maybe I didn't do it right and will read up on technique and try again but the pictures show that it didn't quite cover. - When you just glance at the desk drawer now, it doesn't just scream "I'm all scratched up" but it isn't really covered either.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Diannajh not the best
I would recommend this product but only for small scratches. The small scratches you can not even see on the pictures and there were some I marked over, but this stain it was not effective for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Desertheat1 Good for covering marks
Tried these markers on our wood floor where there was a scratch mark. It hides the mark pretty good,but the color was not a perfect match.The floor is a two tone cherry color and the kit did not have that dark in it,but it was a small scratch and it looks fine. I also used it on a mahogany piece of furniture to hide a couple nicks and I found a marker that was close enough. It does dry quickly, so be sure you only do a small area at a time. Overall I am happy with the assortment of colors and if you take a little time you can get a pretty good match.
