My favorite finish is oil varnish, but I offer a variety of finishes.

There's an excellent discussion about finishes used by various builders in this thread on the OLF.

There is no best clear coat. All have advantages and disadvantages.
What are you looking for? Something easy to apply, non-toxic, quick drying, catalyzed cure, super thin, easy to repair, brush on, spray on, do it yourself, send it out, clear, amber, etc.....
