I've got a small scratch in...

I’ve got a small scratch in a maple end table from the 1950s. The table isn’t worth much, but I love it. Can the scratch be covered somehow?
Some scratches can be concealed with a paste of instant coffee and water, although this is not recommended for fine antiques. Put some instant coffee in a small bowl, then sprinkle just enough water on the coffee to make a thick paste. Rub the mixture into the scratch.
