I also like danish oil and, like EarlS, I use it under poly (oil based, of course) to minimize blotching. You might also like the old time finish which is a mix of varnish (or oil based poly), mineral spirits (or turpentine), and linseed oil (or tung oil). You can also add a bit of japan drier to speed up the drying. This is usually mixed in a 1:1:1 ratio. But, the beauty of it is that by mixing it yourself, you can change the ratio as you wish. Otherwise, it is very similar to danish oil except, I think, it is somewhat more durable. At a 1:1:1 ratio, it is best applied as a wipe on finish using a folded paper towel. Apply very thinly with as many coats as you like.
