Is there any finish that would create a harden shell to protect the surface of cypress from denting?

Best thing I have found is a product from Behlen called Rockhard. It’s a clear finish that can be applied over certain other finishes. Warning, it’s extremely hard to get all of the bubbles out, but it can be done. I built 2 desk over 8 years ago from cypress and walnut. I used Rockhard and they are still dent free.
