Finishishing Adirondack (tree) dining room table

Attempting to finish a really nice old piece of wood that was a solid dining room table. Successfully removed a thick layer of varnish but want to know the best filler (if any) to use. The table has 6 or 7, 1 square inch area where the varnish pulled off some wood, approx 1/8 inch deep.

Wood filler does not seem to look good. You loose the grain and it looks like a patch. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

It would be difficult to get an invisible repair with a filler

Is this a veneer or solid wood? Solid wood can be sanded smooth.
