Before using a filler, try steaming them out. If you do use a filler, my preference is slightly darker than surrounding wood instead of trying to match color because trying to match exactly is difficult (for me) and the next best thing is a tad darker. I haven’t used that brand of wood filler, right now I’m using Elmer’s wood filler and it does the job but I don’t stain or dye it. Most important—practice on a scrap piece or the underside of the table.
