As duc996 said, danish oil will pop the grain. Keep in mind that it will impart a slight amber color to the maple. If you want a lighter color, try tung oil. Apply it about the same way. Which ever one you use, make sure it is fully cured before applying a water based finish. Some might recommend applying a coat of blond shellac between the oil and the water based finish.
