I'm restoring a commemorative plaque given to
a family member some years ago in Bermuda,
which is made of the now scarce local Bermudian
It would seem to have had some form of oiled
finish at one time. This has gone and the wood
which has been exposed to light is now clean
and as if never treated. (There is some sort of
oil residue left in what were covered areas.
Would anyone care to give guidance on what
are suitable treatments for cedar, particularly
one which might still allow the wonderful smell
of the wood to remain noticeable.
