Hey Grant, I do have a couple of ideas on filling the knot. First thing is it depends on what your plannig for a stain or finnish on the top. But my idea is to make the knot a really dark color because it will look more natural that way. If it was me I would mix up some water base stainable filler with some dark brown aniline dye. Mash it into the hole as best you can. Might take a couple of applications. When it’s dry sand it out and take a look. If it doesen’t look like a solid knot, get out an artist brush and work the dye into the knot. Just a thought and good luck! Great piece of Myrtle by the way.
