I would use a dye to get the color you want and then finish the doors with blend of BLO and spar varnish and mineral spirits in equal measure. Use a quality spar varnish such as Epifanes from a marine supply. That will give you an oil blend finish that will be easily renewable without having to strip the old finish off and will be more durable than a straight oil finish.
