Drill it out enough to install a plug made from the same wood. Plug cutters can cut into the face grain of a piece of scrap that matches the wood. Align the grain as best as you can, and glue the plug in. Plane flush with the surface after the glue dries.

I had considered this but was wondering how that would look…would the perfect circle cutout really stand out? I’ve done it with end grain and they obviously really stand out (which is a desired effect in that case) . But if I were to make the plug from face grain then the only obvious thing would be the contour I guess.
