John, it is too late now, but red oak is not the best choice of woods to use for out door projects. You should get the feet off the ground so water doesn’t infiltrate causing rot. Most (all) stains are light sensitive. Spar varnish with heavy UV inhibitors is usually recommended for out door use. Epifanes is a good one, but there are many. However, you need to be prepared for annual maintenance in any case. HTH
