How would you approach modeling this part?

I have a relatively simple part to model. I can model something that will work but I thought it would be interesting to see what approach others would take.

I can go into more detail if needed.

 

Here is the basic premise:

 

The part is a simple short cylinder. OD x ID x THK.

The part is cut in half thru the center.

The two halves are tack welded back together then machined as a single piece.

The tack weld is removed and you end up with two pieces.

The two pieces can then be mated together and share a common axial centerline. Basically the process just removes the saw kerf.

Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.
