I’d be conscious of the inability of end grain to hold threaded fasteners.

Do you have access to a metal scrapyard? I see angle iron lengths, drilled for lags.

You might look at the Simpson joist hanger stuff. They make some galvanized angle brackets that would be appropriate for the inside of that butt joint. There are also strapping products that could be cut to length, bent at 90o and affixed to the outside of the joint.
