I recently had to finish and old cedar chest. I used acetone to clean it off before staining and finishing (as per Norm Abrams by the way). Never tried turp before so I can't comment on it. You can also restore the natural oils in the cedar by wiping on a coat or two of cedar oil to bring back the original scent and help seal the wood.
