Refreshing the finish on dining room table

I have an older Queen Ann style Bernhardt dining room table. It is in good condition except for a few places that look like scratches but don't go down to the wood. What is the best way to freshen this up without stripping it?

refreshing the finish

Assuming you do not wax your table something you may want to consider is French Polish. You should get info via internet no problems. I've used it on tired looking finishes with great success. Also I think it smells yummy.

I haven't heard of that before, I will have to check on it. What I have used when I have refinished things is Tung Oil. Would that work on this table and should I use steel wool on the indentations in the finish before I put something on it?
