Well this is the first time I tried to make my own axe from scratch. I have done lots of peicing together stuff but never went so deep. I bought cheap wood, I'm into this thing for about 75 bucks. The body is made of Birch & the neck is Walnut & Popular, not sure if that's a good choice but fuck it.

The cheap woods are likely a good place to practice your hand, but I don't know if I'd spend much time playing it.
