In the social simulation game Animal Crossing: New Horizons, your main objective is to establish civilization on a remote island. You’ll be doing a lot of farming and crafting for the villagers throughout this voyage. 

You will need to get certain tools first, though, so do that. That also includes an axe that can be used to gather stones and fell trees. We can assist you if you are new to the game and are unsure of how to unlock and manufacture an axe in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH).

Sure, I can provide a guide on how to unlock the axe recipe in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. 

Here are the steps and explanations:

Step 1: Upgrade Your Resident Services Building

How to Unlock Axe

To unlock the axe recipe, you need to upgrade your Resident Services building from a tent to a proper building

You can do this by completing the following tasks:

        Once the new building is constructed, you will have access to new services and features, including the ability to purchase new DIY recipes and tools.

        Step 2: Purchase the Pretty Good Tools Recipes

        With the upgraded Resident Services building, you can now purchase the Pretty Good Tools Recipes set from Timmy and Tommy in the Nook’s Cranny shop. This set includes the recipe for the axe as well as other useful tools like the shovel and fishing rod.

        The Pretty Good Tools Recipes set costs 3,000 bells, but you will need to have already purchased and learned the Flimsy Axe recipe before you can buy it.

        Step 3: Craft the Flimsy Axe

        Before you can make the axe, you need to first craft the Flimsy Axe recipe. This recipe can be obtained in a few different ways:

              Once you have the Flimsy Axe recipe, you can craft it using the following materials:

                  After you have learned the Pretty Good Tools Recipes set and crafted the Flimsy Axe, you can finally craft the axe itself. 

                  To do so, you will need the following materials:

                        With these materials, you can craft the axe at any crafting table. Once you have the axe, you can use it to chop down trees and gather wood more efficiently than with the Flimsy Axe.
