How to Use Sandpaper on Cedar Wood to Restore the Aromatic Wood
posted on by

Q: I relined our closet with aromatic cedar last year using a cedar kit from a home center. The material is about 1/4" thick. It went up well and looks good. Unfortunately, we no longer smell the cedar aroma. Is there a way to renew the odor?

Sanding down cedar lumber grain Lightly sanding the top layer off cedar wood will refresh the grain and bring back the much loved aroma.

A: Yep, sand it lightly. Sanding the cedar, even with 220-grit sandpaper, will remove the oxidation layer and restore the aroma. Plan on doing this once or twice a year if you want to keep the smell going strong.

    I have a very large cedar closet. Does the cedar closet need up be hand-sanded and if not, how does one best use a power sander?
