I built a small outdoor table (1 1/2" cedar) 6 years ago. Stained with
CWF-UV5 Cedar (penetrating wood finish) an outside stain for siding.
I've re-stained periodically but am concerned with a few fracture lines (checks??) starting in one of the pieces of cedar.

Would anyone recommend my sealing the wood or applying something else?
Should these fracture lines be repaired?

Thanks for your reply.

How deep do the cracks run? It looks to me like it's time to replace the top. The only thing that might help it is to flood the cracks if they are shallow with a spar varnish and wipe off what is on the surface. It might take several applications to fill the cracks. If the cracks run deep I would just leave it alone.
