Slick plan for building your own axles.
I built my own 11-1/2" drive shaft from a 5' or so truck shaft in my small home shop. That part of my project was a lot easier than yours as I only had to cut one end.
Tacked it together a couple of times while 'hammer truing' it up. Then skip welded it around the perimeter to keep it from doing anything interesting. The factory 'balance weight' was on the end I didn't cut and I left it in place. Never did get it balanced. That was many thousands of miles ago.
