Default New UDS and Finishing the table?

I just finished my newest uds and this time I made a table to go with it. I bought the table from Lowes as unfinished. I was wondering what I should use to finish it with. It is not going to be left out in the weather so I'm not sure if I should use a laqure(sp), stain, or just rub some minerial oil on it. Any thoughts. Thanks. Pic's coming soon

Red Oak stain with some Thompsons water seal to protect it from any spills during cooking would be my advice.

I like to use spar varnish sprayed on with a HVLP sprayer. It holds up well to any weather, once dry has is food safe, and lasts a very long time with a semi hard finish. The only issue with any finish will be it showing knife marks if you cut directly on it. Other wise spar is the way to go IMO

New UDS w/ table

Peek inside, there is a 2nd grate below this one.

With the top half off to make it easier to get to the basket
