Cheap and reasonably easy way to add some warmth to your lighter!
Wood veneer is great and light yet resistant structures can be made with it. Since I wanted a 'classic' twist to my Bic, the wood veneer turned out to be the obvious choice. I like the look minimal, hence I limited the finish to a simple lacquer, but feel free to push it further along your imagination! The instructable is explained for a Bic lighter but can be adapted to most lighter shapes.
