Nice table. Last picture – I thought that was a buffing cloth on it.

Oil based poly will bring out the color. Water based will not. It will only bring out the color until the water dries out of the finish and then it will look just like it did before you started. I use satin oil based poly. Not shiny but brings out the color. I really like these tables. I just found a local guy selling cedar slabs that are about 14” wide with one side straight, one side with bark and about 2 1/4 thick. I’m thinking about getting some.
