Cedar Lined Chest

I have recently inherited my Grandmothers cedar chest. Actually I think it may be oak with a cedar lining. It is in fair condition but there is some water damage to the finish on the lid. What would be the best way to restore/refinish this? The cedar lining has a strong mothball or must odour. It also appears to be dusty but it the dust won't come off with normal cleaners. I'm afraid this will be passed on to anything I store in the chest. How can I get rid of the odour? Should unfinshed cedar look dusty? It's a beautiful chest and I'd love to get back to it's original condition. Any ideas would be very helpful. Thanks for having such a great site.
