Can anyone do an instructable on how to make an axe from scratch? Thanks Answered

I have been looking around and am unable to find any instructions on how to make axes from scratch (i.e. making the metal part, probably with sand casting or forging and working) I dont mind what sort of axe whether it be full sized two handed, or a small hatchet type. Can anyone do an instructable or give me a link to one that I may have missed?
Thanks

Looking at the process I didnt think the finished product would look so good.
Way to go.
