I really like the finish I get from natural danish oil and wax when I don’t want to use a stain. It’s a lengthy finishing process and can take up to a week to allow for proper drying, and you have to be diligent about wiping the excess that seeps out every few hours or so, but the results are nice

Here is a piece of scrap ambrosia maple with just Danish oil (no wax yet)

None of the red grain was visible until the danish oil went down. It does a great job at popping the grain
