I do some woodworking and would use a spar varnish designed for marine use.
Might want to check local boat parts/supply store.
One thing is any finish will last longer if all sides and ends of the wood
The reason the bed and stock racks on my 48 Reo 2t are near perfect is
that Dad slathered some of the used crankcase oil on them
annualy,(reasoning? the acid that eats your bearings in a gas engine
kills the microbes that cause rot)done in hot summer heat the stuff is
absorbed,gives uniform color,keeps the hold down bolts from rusting,and
doesn't break down in UV light like cuticy poo marine sorta finishes?

What's the best protectant to put on wood beds?
I'm more concerned with protection than looks, but I don't want
something so thick that it's brittle and cracks.
Teak oil runs a very high second, if you think
maybe you don't want that telephone pole
what about the stuff people use for their decks at home?
