If you don’t want a higher sheen I would use a purely oil finish. I use teak oil but there are a bunch out there. Personally I haven’t seen any difference in protection between teak oil and danish oil. One thing you should do is wipe the surface down with some towels. The oil will soak into the wood, especially in defects, then after you are done wiping it down it will creep back up. You have to make sure you wipe these spots or they can dry as glossy spots. With danish oil I wipe it down a bunch of times over a couple of days to take away the tackiness as it dries.
