If they are black marks made by putting a tin on the surface then use oxalic acid. You can get it from Amazon and it cost about 10 - magic!

Caring for oak furniture depends on several factors and the first one is whether you keep it inside or outside your home. The interior oak furniture should be conditioned either with oil or wax in order to protect it from infestations and stains as well as from cracking. Both oiling and waxing need to be repeated every couple of months during the first years and later less frequently (twice a year). Apply the wax (the best is beeswax) in the direction of the grains and remove it when dried. Also, make sure that you keep your oak furniture clean but avoid harsh chemical cleansers. Oak is a natural material and should be treated as such. Use all natural, oil-based cleansers only or wipe the dust with a soft cloth dampened in linseed oil. Stains and scratches are the biggest nightmare of every oak furniture owner but both can be easily repaired on your own in most cases. To remove stains, apply some butter to the stain, leave it overnight and remove with a clean cloth in the morning. This method is effective for many kinds of stains including those caused by spills and even heat. If you have scratched your oak furniture you can sand it down but if the damage is severe or if you have scratched a valuable piece of furniture you should perhaps leave over the repair to an expert.
