Walnut live edge harvest table finish

I really like how tung oil brings out the beauty in walnut. But I am aware this type of finish is just not practical for a table top with the issues of water staining, etc. My question is can you top coat the oil finish with a wiping varnish or a polyurethane to get the protection needed? I would not have a problem with the top finish even having a slight amber tone. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
