Running a dehumidifier is a good idea, but it’s never going to shut off during the humid months, and that can drive up your electric bills pretty quickly.

Any motor oil (synthetic or not ) will protect tools from rust, but it will wreak havoc with furniture finishes if it penetrates into the wood pores. I think your best bet is to carefully wipe your tools off (or blow them off with compressed air, if you can) then wipe on a light coat of camellia oil.
