I’ve actually tinkered around with the same situation. I found Waterlox satin urethane to lay nicely over oil, and it’s a very durable, water resistant finish. I just used it on a wenge countertop for the new vanity I built for our guest bath.

They claim it resists water marks, etc, and my test boards beaded up water like I’ve never seen with a poly finish.

This finish will work for you, but no doubt there are dozens of others that might perform just as well. This just happens to be the one I found that was good enough that I quit looking.
