Butcher’s wax says on the can “Bowling Alley Wax” and for “floors, furniture, antiques, metal, leather, drawer slides, and musical instruments. It contains naptha and turpentine, but it evaporates off.

If you check out this how to with danish oil:

You’ll see it says, ”The interesting thing about Danish Oil is that it will seep out of the wood grain and back onto the surface of your wood project.”

So yeah, make sure to periodically check on it and remove all the seeping oil, and give it a few days (yes, they say days, plural. Weirds me out too. Even regular BLO is typically only an overnight thing), then hit it up with your wax.
