Fill with that special crystal clear epoxy. Heck, if the void is big enough you could go wacky and embed a few termite or other wood eating bugs in the epoxy for “visual interest”. It “wood” be a conversation starter at the bar.

I will uassaly use a grinder to get rid of anything real punky and then seal the rest with a rub on polyurathane by minwax, gives it a deep luster and not a plastic look.
Nice slabs,
I’m always looking for wider walnut slabs
