The best “filler” is typically sawdust and glue.

But, from looking at your work, you probably already knew that, and you want a push towards the right/better fix. I would strongly consider replacing a bit of that veneer with a dutchman patch. If you do it well, you can follow the grain of the wood, and it will hardly be seen. And, of course, if you used hide glue on the veneer, you can just lift the whole thing off with an iron and replace.

My advice … don’t cut corners, your reputation is invaluable.
