Casting metal

Is there anyway I can melt thin metal at home, safely? I dont need to a ton of it or anything, but what I want to do it make some custom tone and volume knobs for a project I want to do, I would like to melt some metal and cast it in to the design I want. Is this possible, if so how?

Thats a pretty cool site, Im going to have to read it again to clear a few things up, but cool none the less. As for the kind or metal I was thinking something like aluminium or something along those lines. Tools...............HMMMM I have a blow torch
