Customized zippo lighter case

In this post I am gonna share how I customized zippo lighter case. I haven’t used any power tools for this project. I started by drawing some ideas on paper, selecting the wood and cutting the wood in desired sizes for the zippo’s case.

Olive wood glued to the zippo's case

I took me some time to get the desired shape, but it came gorgeous. Next was to remove silver coat on zippo’s case and polish the brass surface. So, to remove silver coating I used several different sandpaper grits. After that I used hand cranked grinder to polish the exposed brass surface.
