Fitting a 14mm axle to 10mm Dropout

I had thought about using a heavy duty wheel off a cargo bike but the axle thickness is 14mm in dia. I doubt cones exist which will accept a 10mm axle yet still mate to the races. Therefore, I was thinking an axle filedown to 10mm thickness might work. The filing width would equal the dropout thickness, +/- lateral tightening play. The drops on the frame are vertical. Would this work? Input welcomed...!
