I have many times used Watco satin wax over Watco Danish oil on furniture. I like the look and texture. And it is very easy to apply. There are many wax options and I think Fine Woodworking recently had a review article on furniture waxes. For kitchenware items finished with Tried and True Danish oil, I have used Mahoney’s walnut oil/wax product and really like that as well. I have never brushed on Danish oil, just wiped it on with a rag or paper towel (following directions on the can) and of course you can wet sand it too. I think waiting for days between coats like you do is a good idea although I have never sanded between coats. Personally I think Danish oil is the best finish for walnut although many would disagree I’m sure. Keep us posted!
