For my last project there was a decent sized hole from a missing knot. Wouldn’t have mattered much except I needed a screw to go into the board thru that void. I ended up using regular epoxy since it was on a side that wasn’t going to show and didn’t matter if it was obviously not wood.

As far as planing after using it, just my opinion but I somewhat doubt that you’d be able to because it seems to cure much harder than the wood around it.

I remember reading somewhere that people have added charcoal dust to the epoxy and it gives it a (in their words) jet black look that enhances the knot.

Hopefully my rambling will be of some use to you. Good luck with the fix and planning for a project.
