Sorry for my slow response, I didn't see the new posts when I first looked at them.

Finish: My finish schedule is as follows:
  1. Dk Mission Brown TransTint Die (50/50 water/DNA)
  2. Vinyl sealer coat (sanding sealer used under pre-cat lacquer)
  3. Fill the pores with wood filler (Behlen Pore-O-Pac) dyed with Van Dyke Brown UTC
  4. Pre-cat lacquer (2 mist coats followed by 4 full coats)
I find lacquer produces a much more beautiful finish than poly. It's also very forgiving and it's much more repairable. (Just don't use it in high humidity unless you add a retarder.)

Apron: I'm currently making the apron, it will be bended to match the circle at a 2.5" inset, but with the "arms" protruding. (I decided to finish the top before finishing the bottom just so that I could seal it from the elements to avoid any humidity induced wood movement. I didn't want the joints to crack on me. A little out of order, but an once of prevention...).
