Sounds like an idea that is worth a try. the vacuum sucks the air out of the voids in the wood, the air is replaced by the oil as the vacuum is released (actually as the pressure is increased). I don’t think you would need to let the finish ‘cure’ while under vacuum.
Let us know how it works out for you.
