The objective is to open the pores to restore the aroma that is waiting to be let loose. There are a couple of ways you can do this. One method is to very lightly sand the surface using a fine 200 grit sandpaper on a sanding block. What this will do is the sandpaper will penetrate the pores and will open up pockets in the wood where the precious cedar oil is contained. Be very careful with the sanding though as you don’t want to end up with scratch marks. This is avoidable if you sand in the same direction as the grain. You will find that it’s not going to take much sanding before you smell the aroma of the cedar once again.
When you transform your router in to a v-groove router by using the bit you need, which should you use? Carbide (tungsten carbide) tipped bits are manufactured of an extremely hard material that remains sharp for a longer period of time than steel bits, and are heat resistant. A steel v-groove bit is great when you only use it in your router occasionally, but carbide generally lasts about 20 times longer than high speed steel (HSS.)
