Here’s a finish that I learned from a guy with 50 years professional experience:

Wipe/rub on the boiled linseed oil
Immediately wipe on dewaxed shellac

I do similar, all in one step, mixing 33% each of BLO, Sealcoat, and Pine Turpentine. Do NOT substitute paint thinner, “turps”, or any other similar solvent.

Keep it in a squeeze bottle and keep shaking to keep it mixed. Wipe it on, wipe it off, move on in just a few hours with solvent or oil clears.

I also use this under water based finishes on certain woods with fantastic results, letting it dry over night.
