Careful what decking mfgers you choose. If rounded edges, mine ~ 1/8, better to have solid core color. The bottom browns had lighter core which showed up a bit after running over with router. Kinda see in pic.

My vote is Spar Varnish, this is 2x12's burned then 5 coats of Pettit Z-Spar Captain's Varnish 1015 is the brand in the pic. If it can last outdoors on boats in the weather it should do well partially covered, it appears to be tough so far on this bar.

@dtel Great looking bar!

I essentially did the same thing...although mine isn't as curvy and fancy as yours, I used sparathane to seal the wood. Here's a pic of the bar top I ended up with:



I still plan to trim the edge of the bar...but at this point it will be a next year project.

Thank you
Well I was going for curvy but not fancy, I just wanted half circle with what looks like bamboo on the front. My wife said I need to build it strong someone may dance on it one day , I asked if I could pick who dances, probably not the best question.

I love your old time nails in the top and nice looking burn, very nice look.
