I am also a fan of Tried and True finishes, especially their varnish oil. It will pop the grain and it has just enough varnish to impart a little protection but does not give a heavy sheen that can make other varnishes look like plastic. It is one of most natural looking finishes I have tried. It builds slowly so for a table top, I would probably put at least 5 or 6 coats on it.

BTW, it you do find that whatever finish you choose is too glossy, you can usually tone the gloss down by applying a paste wax with a 0000 steel wool or abrasive pad.
