Hey, perhaps the OP has his hands on what is free oak. In this case, it’s not so much a question of longevity but how to get the best use. I also have gotten my hands on some oak that was less than free and would consider using for outdoor. I know it would rot…. eventually. If red oak, it is really porous so try to get something to seal the pores as best as possible to slow the degradation. It is likely too much work, but if you porefilled and then followed with a spar varnish you might do quite well with red oak. Worst case, you could always get coverings too.
