Be aware that the finish you applied was a mixture of BLO, varnish, and MS (nary a drop of tung oil). The varnish they use is a polyurethane formula, I believe. As such, be very sure it has cured out before applying a top coat, and you might want to scuff sand it as well. Polyurethane resins inhibit bonding, making the scuff sanding necessary. Any top coat will adhere, but knowing what the goal is would make it easier to comment on alternatives. Can't tell what that piece is in the pic, but that is some mighty purty wood!
