Beautiful table! Love the walnut and maple contrast!
I'm partial to a natural stain just to bring out the color. Sanding sealer, steel wool, then a couple coats of clear lacquer. You will find lacquer dries fast, is forgiving in the sprayer, and provides a hard finish. Easy to respray later if you need to refresh top.

does lacquer yellow over time? That is my biggest fear. I really do not like yellow wood.

 I have not had a problem with lacquer yellowing. Got some 30 yr old projects that have not yellowed. Inside, out of the sun of course.

Lacquer can yellow with sun exposure.  Its less noticeable with dark woods.

Nitro cellulose lacquer will yellow.

On the first page of this thread I posted a picture of Sherwin Williams CAB lacquer.  It has UV protection built in and does not yellow.  Goes on water clear and stays that way.  I used the dull rubbed sheen on all the woodwork, doors, and cabinets in my house 10 years ago. I don't see any change in the finish.  Check back in another 10 years for an update. :D
