I have some wood full of some kind of bug holes. The holes really make the wood look good. What should I use to fill the holes, but not cover them up. I would like the finished pieces to have the exposed holes, but the finish be smooth across the holes.

I use the gel type super glue.

I use epoxy with either black or brown colorant added.

Does the gel type super glue?
If colorant is not added, will the epoxy dry clear?
