For the base of my cypress table, I went to my hardware store and they gave me Thompson's water seal and marine varnish. I did the base with the water seal and the directions said to wait a week before applying the varnish which I plan to do this weekend.
The table top has not been delivered yet.
Is Thompson's the correct seal to use under a marine varnish?
If not, what brands do you recommend I do on the top?
I did not expect to wait a week before I could apply the top coats.
