The methods discussed in the repair is a reasonable way to do a temp fix, but to do a fix that will last for ever you really need to use lacqure sticks and blending powder. This is not something anyone can do, you do need to learn the process. Try to find someone that does spot finishing/repair work for furniture. I do some of this and can make nicks, dents, burns, water rings and much look as though they never happened.

I need advice on how to remove wax from my family's china buffet. A red candle was set directly on the wood and the red soaked into the wood. Will any of these techniques work on this problem?

I have also had luck in the past by putting a cup of water upside down over a gouge in the top of a piece of furniture. The water in some cases will cause the wood underneath to swell up and fill the gouge. Then you can finish the former gouge to match. Try this at your own risk!
