I'm sure that's doable, but in my experience, it's really tricky getting anything screwed on afterwards; there's usually some bending or thread deformation. It may be easier to find a shorter, pre-cut threaded rod. 12" is a pretty common size though, and threaded rods are pretty popular axles, so I'm guessing more than a few teams will encounter this eventually.
