I wouldn’t use either linseed oil or boiled linseed oil in a kitchen even if plan on top coating with oil or water base finish.

Zinsser’s SealCoat Universal Sanding Sealer can be used with any clear finish. Doesn’t coantain stearates or waxes!

Water base finishes will also impart a amber hue, but if want natural look choose a WB product that drys clear. Water based, environmently with quick easy clean up. Most brands dry in about two hours.

If don’t mind amber tone just about and oil finish will do and still give you a natural look. Oil based polurethane the most durable, and take more time to dry.

Lacquers, catalyzed, acrylic, precatalyzed, vinyl, and standard (nitrocellulose) come in variety of sheens from flat to high gloss. SealCoat Universal Sanding sealer a good idea drys in about two hours.
