Peppermill save needed!

>I have a 10" peppermill kit and my blank finished out at 9 7/8" or so. Have any of you ever cut the rod down and tried to thread it?

Or would I be smart just to cut in an band for the middle and laminate it in place?

I could also turn a small spacer and glue it in at the bottom to make up the difference? I already have a piece of ebony that volunteered...

Which would you do (any which is/are foolhardy?)

In the grand scheme of things, I'd rather have the entire mill appear to be solid cherry, but any port in a storm...
