That is looking good. Is it going to be out in the elements when finished? I built a similar table out of treated pine and put clear sealer on it, but it was off my deck and even with a cover on it got some algae build up. I would suggest a light grey or light brown to show the would grain and then seal the shite out of it or possibly go with a similar color tinted deck stain that has fungicide built in.
When we had our house an deck remodeled I had the cabinet maker throw in a new table out of cypress and added a granite top from remnants from the kitchen and bar. It is a Primo Oval, pretty big and weighs a ton. This was before drawer/cabinet pulls were added and has 6 heavy weight castor wheels below which have come in handy moving the whole thing into the kitchen to stain the deck, etc and the lacquer coating on the wood has held up excellent under the roof on the deck. $400 was a bargain.
ETA - You might want to look at Sherwin Williams "Hawthorne" semi-transparent deck stain, it looks really good on high grade pine decking and allows the wood grain to show through. That is Linden cut 50/50 on the table, I would much prefer the Hawthorne color but the table is great.
