any oil will help stabilize, its not going to harden it.(not sure why you’d need to with oak) The other nice thing is once it dries you can always add another finish over it if desired.

BLO will “yellow” the wood a little. Not so much on oak, but still. Tung oil has less of an effect, but its still there. The darker the wood, the less it will be noticeable.

As you say, testing is the best idea.
