Glad to see you’re enjoying woodworking, this table looks nice but you need to attach your top differently, like many new woodworkers your top does not allow for wood movement this can cause your top to crack
Here’s some information about wood movement.

Nice job. Welcome to Woodworking. Please take the advice about wood movement into consideration for all woodworking projects. When finishing experiment with some dyes before you polyurethane it especially with oak it will balance out the colors.
beautiful table anyway I’m sure you’ll get many many years of pleasure out of it.

Don’t you just love how the grain and color pops out when you put the finish on . Really beautiful piece .
