If you use a two to one part mix epoxy warmed to high room temp, it’ll soak soak into soft wood. Those areas will be as or more solid than the rest of the unit.

I pay around a hundred bucks for a 1-1/2 gallon of the glue (not pouring) version. For pouring, I’d switch to casting resin.

You can brush the very liquid epoxy into voids around and over the bark. If you do the project over plastic, you can keep scraping it off the plastic with wood wedges (I use tongue depressors) and putting it back where it soaked in.

As others said, fill deep voids in stages.

You can use something like clay or plumbers putty to seal tough spots.
