disguise them as worm holes - anything else would look artificial........

What about filling them with something completely contrasting like a brass filler?

Dave,

a cabinet makers trick used to use or mix the sanding dust from the piece with a pva glue. The pva dries clear and leaves a very similar colour, filled hole.

Never used the method on turnig pieces but, you never know. Could always test on a spare piece perhaps first?
