pull up bar

I hope I am putting this in the right forum, if not please let me know.
So I built a pull up bar and was wondering what epoxy I could use to fill in this hole where the nut is. The nut and bolt are sercuing the bar to the 4x4. This epoxy would need to bond to wood and metal and be just as strong as the 4 X 4 its in. I would also like it to be strong enough to not break, twist, crack, or other wise when I tighten bolt with a impact wrench. Any Ideas?

Gorilla glue will be useless as a filler.
The hole should have been counter bored and a convex washer used not hacked out like that.

Then a simple wood plug would have filled the hole.
A cheap, simple to use filler would be Durhams Water putty.

There is no way for me to counter bore the hole with it being in the middle of the 4x4, and apart for the washer bending I did not see what good the convexed washer would do. If you could enlighten me that would be great. seeing that I have never used durham water putty be able to hold the nut in place while the bolt is being tightened with a impact wrench?

The only reason why I needed to put the bolt and nut in was because I did not want the bar to spin when I was hanging from a set of bars that come out of the bigger bar.
