made a similar repair to the corner of a window. I think it was a Minwax 2-part product that came in a can. Not a high tech thingie like the gun, but it worked very well.

I would do a wooden Duchman. Kind of like this or a butterfly.. works the best and fills the void.
I just watched this video (on the previous page) and I was wondering....

i would think one of reasons to use a butterfly with that specific shape is to pull the gap (the crack in the table) together. He probably could have done that with a couple of bar clamps, and then chisel out the dutchman. Any reason why that wouldn't work?

The reason I use a wooden dutchman, is because it all moves at the same rate with humidity and temp. The wood fillers do not always hold up like you would like, it all depends on their use. The wood lasts as long as the glue holding it in. The OP can do anything they want, as it will fill the void. But then there is the difference between what a Professional does, and what a homeowner does or wants and can put up with as a final product..
