Paintable caulk and a paint marker or whatever to color it to match the box...

You can countersink it and buy some plugs.

Golf tee + wood glue or tooth picks + wood glue. This is what I have always done in the past and when done right, leaves a perfect seal and finish.

Ive done this before when I changed amps. Works well if done right.

Yea, I almost always use toothpicks and glue. I'll use a golf tee if it's a big enough hole. The golf tee works the best as you can hammer it in place and then break off the end easily. But like I said, it really only works well on larger holes (you can always drill them slightly larger if you don't want to use toothpicks).

i have always used tooth picks and wood glue for filling any holes in wood
