Smithing is a very profitable and fun skill, this article covers a couple of smithing money making methods in osrs.

[F2P METHOD] Smithing money-making with rune items
Smithing rune items at an anvil is one of the best F2P smithing methods in the game. However, it requires 99 smithing which is very expensive to achieve in just F2P game-play without the blast furnace. Check out our Smithing Guide for more info on F2P smithing methods.
The items you’ll be smithing are: rune plateskirt, rune platelegs or rune 2h sword. You should check the current GE price to see which is most profitable at the time. Each of these items requires 3 rune bars to make.
I should probably also note that you need at least 30M capital to be able to purchase 2700 runite bars which is what you’ll be smithing per hour.
This will result in 900 rune items per hour with a total profit of 600K gp per hour. This method also gives 200K exp per hour which is why many players use it to go for 200M smithing experience.
Fun fact: getting from 99 smithing to 200M experience will make you 550M in total. Doing so at the blast furnace with rune bars, will make you 1.7B in total but it will be twice as slow.
Hopefully, these smithing money-making methods have taught you just how profitable smithing can be. Check out the wiki for accurate pricing.
