I respectively disagree on a spar varnish ..my experience has shown that film finishes dont hold up well exterior, sprar or not, ..We have been involved in alot of testing since we had a disaster with a spar vernish.
A penetrating oil seems to be the best .. we have settled on one called One Time , its been on a plywood trailer bed for about 4 years, and while ready for another coat it has held up well
horizontal surfaces dont hold up as long as verticle.
Red oak as stated is a poor exterior wood… coat the feet bottoms with epoxy and get some glides to keep it off the ground will help
