For a deep varnished look, I use West System epoxy and 207 special clear hardener. Usually 2 coats of epoxy. Then 2-3 coats of varnish with a high UV block rating. No water based varnish. Lightly sanded between coats. It gives the 10-12 coat varnish look. Needs light sanding and revarnish each season. If revarnished each year, rarely has to be stripped and completely redone. Epoxy must always be protected with a UV coat or it will deteriorate.
