Just leave the holes as they are.... when gluing on the scales, ensure you use enough epoxy/glue to fill the "hollows"/holes. The combination of the hollows, holes not only serve to lighten and aid in overall balance, but the addition of glue/epoxy create a sort of "epoxy rivet".

On hunter and larger sized full tangs, I also taper the tangs in addition to the holes and hollows.
