To survive on a desert island, you need tools! It's one of the first items you'll have in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but you won't have all the tools at once. You will indeed have to tinker with them, and for that, get the DIY plans! We explain how you get the ax easily.

How to unlock the ax in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
In New Horizons, the tools have the particularity of having to be crafted, thanks to the DIY workbench! This is located in the Residents' Office, and in order to use it, it is necessary to have the DIY plan of the desired object, as well as the materials necessary to make it.
For the materials, all you have to do is collect them from the wild: from the trees or even from the rocks. But for diy blueprints, it's a bit more complicated! If you have the Nook Shop unlocked, you can buy them there, otherwise, you'll have to wait for it to be given to you.
For the axe, it's Tom Nook who will give you his DIY plan! Use the workbench a few times, then go talk to him to give him creatures. On the 2nd creature, he will provide you with the ax DIY blueprint.
