Burl/CA question from t he Flat side

Barry Irby
>I have made a chest of drawers that has four book matched burl panels in the top. The burl is black gum and light tan or blond and somewhat punky. There were some bug holes in it. I filled them with sawdust and thin CA. I now have circles round the holes that are darker. The chest will be lacquered. Will the discolorations disappear? Will the lacquer darken the wood just as the CA did? Would it be a good idea to soak each panel thoroughly and completely with CA? That might even out the color and toughen the wood, making a better top.

I'm posting this on the round side because I figure there is more experience with CA and Punky wood here, even if it is flat.
