Sealing Exposed Board?


As part of our 2-story addition....I will be installing a 2x12 rough cut cedar board on one side of the house....

The board is going to go down the side of the addition....basically about level between 1st & 2nd floors (about where those 2 thin lines are)

The board will be used to attach wrought iron brackets to so that my wife can train her wisteria to grow across them.....

The rest of the wall will be stucco (I already have the weep screed and flashing worked out)

I am going to stain the board with Watco Dark Walnut oil stain.....

So...what is the best way to seal that side after the stain has had time to dry? We want a dull look....needs to look rustic English (seeing how my wife is English)

All the stuff I normally use is for indoor....typically semi or high gloss.

Tung oil is out of the question...won't last in the weather....

Thompsons?

edit....just realized I should have put this in painting.....Jim? Care to move it?

I'd just use some kind of ext. oil stain like deckscapes semi transparent.
