What kind of finish do you use on a cedar turning? I didn’t use any because I didn’t want to hide the fragrance, but just wondering what others have done.

Cedar’s fragrance will fade some what as it oxidizes, a light sanding will bring it back.

Back when made lot of blanket chest and sold them did not finish Cedar with anything. Same with x-mas ornaments most of those ornaments no longer have much fragrance.

Have used Shellac to keep the color, but wiped it down with acetone first.
