No matter what finish you use it needs to be at least 60+ degrees or you will have problems. Even if you move the piece into a warm area it needs to come up to ambient temperature before starting the work.

I would apply at least one more coat of the oil (two if you are trying to build a top finish). the blotchy spots may be where the oil soaked in or you missed them. At this point any further buffing should be done with white 3M pad (it is non abrasive). If this third coat looks good I would then apply a paste wax (carnauba type) with the white pad and buff with a soft cloth.
Another method would be to use a top coat or two of a wipe on poly to seal the danish oil. Again I would apply a wax with the white pad and buff.
