Butcher Block Finish

Hi, we found an unfinished new 4' x 2' maple butcher block table top that was nicely and securely mounted on some old black metal foundation. I decided to distress the block with some whacks of a chain and a few dents from a rock. This will NOT be used for food. I stained it with a nice oil colonial maple. My question is this: Can I use the gallon of latex poly that I have here at home or should I purchase a small can of oil poly...or is there something better that will give it a clear-glass like finish?

If the oil stain and the latex poly are compatable [most are] you can use it. Oil base poly dries harder and glossier than latex will. It will darken the stain some.
