How to hide lighter spot on waxed cherry wood sideboard
 
I had to remove an ink spot on a waxed cherry wood sideboard made in the fifties in Paris. I sanded very lightly, the ink is gone and also the finish. I covered that spot with a mixture of bees wax and anilin powder which came with the sideboard. The shade is good but it's too light. Is there anything I could do to darken it? hide it? Thanks for your advice

Cherry is a wood that darkens over time through surface oxidation. You sanded that off. The area will darken on it's own over time, but it will take a while to do it. If you artificially get it to match now, over time that area will become unmatched as the areas age.
