This is a table I just made for my brother.
Looking for recommendations for an outdoor finish for this table made of white oak. It is 42’’ tall with a 3’ diameter.

A neat looking table. Is it put together with T&G.Spar varnish will hold up really well.

Use Minwax Helmsman Spar Varnish to finish. I assume he will keep it outdoors and exposed to weather.

If it is going to be exposed to the weather, I prefer an oil type finish, spar varnish after a few years has to besanded or scraped and redone, with those slots it would be hard to get in between, although it could be donewith thin strips of wood or metal and adhesive backed sandpaper; while and oil type finish can just be wipedon over the existing one every year. Just my personal druthers. Great looking project.

Very nice table.If you could come up with a finish that will keep a wood’s natural color and looking good, outdoorsindefinitely….. you could make billion$.
I would just leave it unfinished and let it go grey. Being white oak it’ll last a lot longer than we will.
