    Camp Pendleton

    Slight scratches in varnished oak flooring

    I really doubt you have varnish unless you know for sure. Do you have site finished wood or prefinished? More likely polyurethane or water based finish if site finished. If prefinished check the manufactures recommendations for touch up, they use a proprietary finish most likely with aluminum...
