I just built a nice strong bench with MDF for my metalworking vice and
have no Poly or any other durable finishes around.
I do have oil based and wash up in water fence and deck stains and I'm

Ah, it's posts like this that just keepsucking me back into this
group. Maybe it's just me, but if it's only an "occasional" splash of
water, I'd just wipe them up, and not sweat it. But, I'd probably opt
for the oil baed stain, if that's all I had. Then, if I was really
worried, I'd wax it too. Or, you could just get some paint later, and
paint it with your vice on - or even, gasp, take your vice off later,
paint the bench, and put your vice back.
Me, I have a metalworking vise. I've got some minor vices, but
water doesn't bother any of them.
