Personally, I think it would look better if the holes were filled with a darker color rather than clear. Our eye-brain connection usually eqates a hole with being dark and is less confusing and therefore more eye pleasing. Anway, I usually fill with CA glue and sawdust. Even of the sawdust is from a lighter wood, it always turns out dark when mixed with CA glue. Just put some CA glue in the hole, put sawdust on top and then more 'thin' CA glue. It will soak through. Build up a few quick layers until it is flush. Filling many holes is still a relatively quick process.
