Question

I have made a coffee table out of oak and plan to make two storage benches out of ash. They will be used in our family room and I have 2 kids, which means lots of wear.

Is is better to use polyurethane or tung oil for the finish? Which will endure the bumps and bruises?

Cool

Polyurethane, hands down.
Tung oil shows the wood much more nicely, but won't hold up nearly as well.
