Unsigned Unsealed and Delivered

The dining set was delivered just before new years. That made it a 14 month project which on a part time basis was ok.
I still need to resolve a couple issues, first being that it needs some kind of a signature. My dad wants his great grandkids to know the origins if it.
Second is the top finish. It is not proving to be as sealed as it should be. When you wipe it with a wet cloth it raises the grain and smells of walnut wood. I will likely just lacquer the hell out of it....but in all seriousness, I'm totally open to suggestions. Right now it has 4-5 coats of oil varnish mix.
Here are some photos, not professional but I ain't got no Ingaborg.

Mylene and Rya, about to burst.  I guess I'll be busy for a while. Oh well, woodworking was fun while it lasted...
