Question Walnut Kitchen Table Finishing

So, I am a newbie and have been reading a lot on different options for finishing and have yet to find a step by step method that lays out what the best way to finish my project. So I am here to ask the question... I have a 18"x52"x2.5" walnut slab that I intend to use for a kitchen table(to eat on, set some warm plates and mugs on, etc.) The prep part I understand and I plan to sand it with a low grain and work my way up to a high grain to get a nice smooth surface and then clean with mineral spirits.
What comes next is what I am unsure of... I think it just needs a nice clear finish, but do not have the space(apartment) or equipment to do a poor on epoxy. I have read into doing a linseed oil finish with a Waterlox sealer but am unsure that it will be enough. In the end I just want the wood to be smooth and protected.
