    My grandmother passed away and I was in charge of designing her cross. It is made of ceder. It is in the ground already but the stuff I put on it is not holding up to the weather. I need to know what will hold up in all sorts of weather and time. Something that has a shine but holds up in sun, snow and rain etc. I appreciate any help I get. I apologize that this has nothing to do with boats, but I thought this would be the best place to come because boats ate in the water. Thanks everyone.

    I would go with Sikkens, Cetol 1, 077 Cedar simply because it's easy to apply, looks great and doesn't need sanding before reapplying, ever. You will need 3 coats in the beginning and then 1 or 2 more coats each year depending on the level of exposure.
