Hi rosq

The easy way is get a new router bit and pass the stock by the bit one more time (make a 1/64" cut that should take them out) but burn marks are nasty to get out any other way, you can some times hide them with dark stain...and rub the stock with some steel wool at the same time this will give the wood a grain look...on the burn marks..

Good Luck

Or lots of elbow grease and fine grit sandpaper.

On chamfered edges, I've been able to sand or hand plane burn marks out. Less usable on contoured edges of course.
