Exterior wipe-on oil


I'm refinishing a small drop leaf table I made for SWMBO to put outdooors. I tried Minwax Helmsman clear satin which looked great for awhile then it started to flack off after being in the sun.
Top is cedar and base of hickory. I saw on HGTV someone putting on a wipe-on oil finish but didn't catch the brand. Anyone had any experience with such a product? Like to put on something that will last at least a year outside. We're in the NW with lots of rain but it sits under the patio roof so gets lots of sun and no rain.
I've researched several products but I really don't trust the advertising, rather go on someones experience.
Thanks in advance. Al in WA

I used boiled linseed oil on my adirondack-style chair that sits outside all summer. Apply early in the season and give it a week to cure. Reapply every spring.

General Finishes "Outdoor Oil". Has UV screen, heat stablizers, and fungicide or anti whatever (keeps that lovely green stuff from growing on it). Its a penatrationing oil, doesn't build a film, and can be refreshed when it starts looking a bit dried out. I used it on a set of redwood gates I built for a client and his only complaint after 2 years was the gates weren't turning that nice silver color like weathered redwood is supposed to. They were still beautiful and red like new.

I am also in the NW and use General Finishes Outdoor Oil. I have the same comments as above.

The cedar tint is better than the clear regarding UV protection.
