What to fill woodworm channels in old pine with

I need to fill some woodwrm channels that appeared in my old pine floorboards after sanding. Any suggestions what to use? Afterwards I'll be applying varnish.
TIA

Cuprinol fast-drying wood filler, available runny in paint-tin like tins. Keep the lid on when not in use. Apply with a filling knife and sand flat after in the direction of the grain. Use a colour that is *darker* than your intended finish.

I recommend Ronseal Heavy Duty floor varnish. Diamond glaze is a waste of money if the floor can be indented.

Thank you for the tip!

Thanks for this tip too! I have already bought some 'performance' eggshell floor varnish from Wickes. I guess it is Wicke's version of the Ronseal stuff. I hope it is good stuff. I suspect it is, because I've never had many comlaints with Wickes products in the past.

Woodworm (actually longhorn beetle larvae) are wider than their channels and won't fit back in.
This marvellous entomological observation is brought to you by Emmie (7), who was fascinated by my woodpile and spent all afternoon pulling the bark off waney timber to see what she could find underneath.

You have to stretch them first.

Yes, I read that. The filler should not be too far different in colour from the boards, just darker. Light filler sticks out like a sore thumb.

That's OK, but it doesn't take stain properly, and is hard to get a good finish on. Sanding PVA glue is a PITA.

I've had lots of problems with some of their stuff, but the "Master" paint range does seem good, and good value for money to boot. Perhaps you'll comment after using this varnish?
