    If I were to glue these together for a body blank, would it work to fill in the resulting gaps with wood filler or something (assuming a solid finish of course)? Or is there really no way around planing them to remove the gaps?

    I do also have some boards that are straight edged, just something I'm wondering about.

    No, you don't want to use that much wood filler. I'd joint the edges to get rid of the chamfers.

    cut the round off, then glue up.... 10 minutes on the table saw will save you hours.

    It looks like your wood may be construction grade lumber like 2x?. If so, be aware it isn't always dried as much as better grades.
