Id like to see an amber shellac on it personally but tung oil will be an easier finish for sure. You may run the risk of it yellowing a bit on ya with tung oil or any other oil at that.

The oil wont give you any protection of the surface. Shelllac (dewaxed) will give you a bit of protection but its susceptible to alcohol spills. A coat of Danish oil followed by a few coats of arm r seal would be my choice if you think its going to get beat on and used heavily. Bulls Eye Shellac can be had at Lowe’s.
