Its possible

In reply to sanding cedar ceiling by Mona on February 13th, 2003 06:57 AM [Go to top of thread]

I have installed cedar ceilings and usually leave them unfinished. Sanding will significanly lighten the ceiling. Cedar has a nice natural sheen to it, but can be made glossier with surface finishes and sealers. Urethane would be a good bet for minimizing darkening while bringing out grain.

The only way I can imagine sanding a cedar ceiling would be with a 4" palm sander. Its a bit awkward because it is overhead and dust will fall in your face. But the wood is soft and work should go fairly quickly.

What are your objectives?
