A different order doesn't help because the overall thickness remains the same, and that's what causes the vignette. I was just wondering if there were such a thing as a screw-on lens hood where its threads stepped-up in size. Then, I would just have Lens -> step-up hood -> filter, reducing the overall thickness, and hopefully removing the vignette.

You could try:

Lens -> ring -> wider hood -> filter

it might be justs as thick, but the hood and filter frame will be further away, so the angle at which they get in the way will be wider.
