That is essentially the finish I use on my workbench, assembly table, and the tables on my RAS. I substitue beeswax for the paraffin, but it’s otherwise the same. It’s very good in this use, glue pops right off, no flaking/peeling, and easily repaired. I suspect it would have the same advantages outdoors, though it would have to be redone more often. A lot of guys just use linseed oil on tool handles, and redo it often. I’m wondering if the wax might might be a problem in the hot sun if it was on a seat. That could be a real mess
