I'm a month late to this thread.... but I've had excellent luck using Waterlox Marine Finish on a table I refinished for our patio. It's been sitting for a year now totally unprotected and still looks good after many days of direct sun and rain. It's designed for use on boats so obviously water isn't an issue. When I tried a water based poly on it the first time... well.... that's where the refinishing came into play.

Cant go wrong with the waterlox marine finish. If you really want it bullet proof then coat it with CPES first. I have some if you want to try it. Youre in SD right?

Any issues with the Epoxy yellowing faster than the tung oil? I know a lot of epoxies aren't in love with UV light.

You have to top coat the Cpes with something that has UV inhibitors and the best choice for that would be Epifanes. That's according the FWW review on exterior finishes. Im sure the waterlox marine finish would be up to task as well.

In restrospect that was a silly question... the UV filtering would be done in the layers above the epoxy.... Didn't completely engage my brain there, sorry. Happened to think though that using a penetrating oil on top of epoxy seems like a bit of a waste.

I'm actually in Charlotte, NC.

Eiji ... where do you pick up Waterlox in San Diego. I went to a marine store yesterday and they did not carry it.

Thanks.

The epoxy will inhibit any penetration of oils so you are right. an oil finish over epoxy is a no no. you need to go with a film finish with uv inhibitors to protect the exopy.
