I like the wax to keep friction down and to provide some moisture protection, but that’s certainly an individual preference.

Danish oil won’t build up a film finish, but will give it a little protection.

BTW, I’m of the school of thought that you shouldn’t use a film finish anyway. It really wouldn’t keep things from getting dinged up and really starts to look bad once it does…and refinishing is a pain. With an oil, you just sand it back a little and replenish when you think it needs it.
