I make my own.
4 parts beeswax, 9 parts grapeseed oil, a small amount (few drops or so) of rosemary oil. Mix over heat and let it set. It takes some rubbing in, and can take up to about 10 days to dry properly, but comes up quite well and never needs sanding. It fades over time, you just rub more on, it's cheap and easy to make.
This is a very old fashioned remedy still in use by a lot of professional antique furniture dealers & repairers.
Of course you can go the whole hog and french polish the thing, but it's not worth the effort for outdoor use IMHO.
