I'm building Adirondack chairs out of cedar that I'll use on my front porch. I want to keep the natural cedar color, but also protect them from the elements and prevent them from getting gray and rough.

I was thinking about doing a coat of clear Thompson's WaterSeal Waterproofing Wood Protector on the cedar boards. Do I need to do anything else like polyurethane or something?
