finishing outdoor pine table

I am building an outdoor table for on my patio. It is made out of pine. I know cedar would have been better, but the table would have cost too much so i am willing to try it with pine and a good finish. The top of the table has a herringbone pattern

What finish should i use?
Cabot penetrating timber oil
Spar Marine Varnish
Penofin
Thompson water sealer

Many of the penetrating oil ones seem to indicate that i can only do 1 coat. I presume you have to just apply another one each year or two years without sanding? Or should i do penetrating oil everywhere, but then a varnish on the top part with the herringbone pattern to make it easier to clean?

I think a varnish might be better, but i cannot really do every board of the chevron 8 times, the fitting would be off etc. Can i just do over top. Or even better, could i just do penetrating oil / mineral spirits soak for the end grains and then add a coat of the cabot timber oil everywhere else. I would then follow it up with a mix of the cabot and a marine varnish. followed up with several marine varnish coats for the top.
Thoughts?
