Flood CWF-UV 1-gal. Clear Wood Finish

I prefer the clear version rather than the "cedar tinted" version even though the clear version is $1 more.  Apply with plenty of ventilation to get rid of the VOCs, but does not contain particularly bad ingredients so ok to use internally.

Can then put varnish over it...

Varathane 1 gal. Amber Gloss Interior Polyurethane (Case of 2) http://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-gal-Amber-Gloss-Interior-Polyurethane-Case-of-2-266250/203326145  $64.92 for 2 gal
Note this is amber color, but might be ok.  Currently best bet.


Epifanes varnish very expensive but might be best bet for front door.


Tung oil is also a good solution (also works outside)...
