That depends on your skills and tools----I would use a router----make a template --remove a section of the wood around the holes and inset a perfect patch--

You tube--router inlay --this will give you an idea how nicely it can be done---bigger bits are used for bigger repairs,but the principle is the same.---Mike----

A picture of the door would be fun to see---

Why are you trying to fill them? What plans do you have for the door?
