Dinning table finish??

Title says its all, im currently coming to the end of a dinnig table project. Ambrosia maple with some heavy curl in it. Ive always been a sealer and laquer guy and i really would like something different for this. Time line is also something to consider. Table is to be delivered next saturday, so whatever choice would have to be good to go by then. Illbe ready for the finishing stage in a aday or so. Heres a link to the thread for the table. Any and all input is greatly appreciated and thank you in advance. Oh yeah, i did alot of looing around the finish forum before posting this and an oil based poly seems to be possible choice, would just like some more input

I like oil based poly however I would be hesitant to deliver a table to be used in a week unless you are going to start on it tomorrow. In that time frame the finish won't fully cure and will need to be treated tenderly for another week. To be on the safe side I believe I would either use lacquer or fast dry polyurethane.

Thanks for the input. I actually went with a fast drying oil based poly. They are gonna have to be tender with the table, especially since they moved up the delivery date by a week. They want it early, they gonna have to treat the table with some love
