JCantin, good note about cedar distinctions. Perhaps this is why aromatic red cedar in this area (particularly in Branson) most of the outdoor cedar furniture is coated in plastic.

Thanks Charles. I’m aware that you know a thing or two about wood finishing, and your advice seems to align with my concerns/hopes. I’ll go with white oak along with a penetrating oil, oiled often.

For an application like this, is the forever-drying-time of Tung oil (not tung oil finish) really an issue? Is there a negative to it not being dry?
