How to do extrude cut or similar?

Hi folks. I'm trying to model a train's sand dome which sits on top of a round boiler. I would like to cut out a flange to sit on top of the boiler, which the dome sits on top of. How can I cut out the flange piece?

See video example here @2:40:  https://youtu.be/Xfv6L9jD988?t=174

I'm migrating to OnShape from another well-known CAD program, and so far I'm really liking it.

    I was able to solve the problem using boolean intersect. As long as the geometry is clean, I don't really care how I get there.

    Thanks again.
