I'm using Osmo Top Oil as my finish. I've used this before on my worktops and it's a great easy to apply finish. I warmed the finish up a little to make it a little less viscous and easier to apply. I just poured it on and spread it with a brush. First coat goes on heavy as most of it soaks straight in. 

Just pour it on.

After the second coat has dried.  Late at night so it would be dry by morning.

Between coats I lightly de-nibbed the surface with some 240 grit paper, the second and 3rd coat were applied with rag. Only the first coat needs to be heavy as it's the only one that sinks into the wood, all subsequent coats just sit on top and add to the thickness off the film.
