Finish help!

Farm table top made from pine stained with minwax gel stain. I need advice on which product would be best. I would like it to not have a shine so I'll use a satin, but which one? And also which brush or foam roller to apply it with( don't have a sprayer) this will be used as a dining table indoors.

If you don't want a shine purchase a finish that is flat or matte. The amount of flattening compound in a finish will determine the sheen. I would apply it with a soft bristle brush instead of a foam brush or roller. Regardless of what method you apply it try not to overwork the finish. Apply it as quick as possible and get off of it. The more you brush a finish the more the brush marks will show.
