tj, The Spar will not protect any wood from the sun. Nor will any other finish. If this bench is to be outdoors, I would predict problems as oak is open grained and not the best choice for outdoor furniture.

When you come over, I will show you an example of an oak chair with Spar that has been exposed to sun but no rain. And it ain’t pretty!

And I really don’t mean to rain on your parade!
