    Go With a spar urethane.

    Sand table and apply one coat
    Sand table with medium grit
    Apply another coat of poly
    Sand with fine grit
    Apply another coat.......

    I use steel wool after the first sanding. More coats and sanding...smoother finish. Be sure to let the product dry before sanding 24-48 hrs.

    If you can, apply the first coat before you assemble, if you're making a table.  I find if you completely encapsulate the wood, it seems to result in a very water resistant finish.
