Best practice for brazed assemblies

I'm a fairly new user to SolidWorks and I don't know the best way to handle a brazed assembly for further modifications. I have two cylindrical parts with 0.002" radial clearance between them in an assembly.  These parts are to be silver soldered together creating a single part that will be subsequently machined.  Currently, I've used a weld bead in the assembly to stand-in for the silver solder.  What is the best way to treat the silver soldered assembly as a single part for later modifications which include machining the silver soldered area?
