My first choice would be a quality oil based varnish, like P&L 38 (hard to find) or SW Fast Dry Oil Varnish. Neither are a urethane formula, but rather an alkyd formula and look really nice; the SW product is a lot more amber than the P&L. But they do have the complication of being very slow to fully cure, and if quickness is important my next choice would be a good quality waterborne. At the top would be GF EnduroVar, followed by other GF products like HP, or maybe something from Target Coatings EM 6000, or maybe EM 8000. The Target Coating products can be catalyzed to make them even more durable.
