BLO has been used for centuries. Seems to me if it is on the same par as motor oil, someone would have figured out an awful long time ago that it is not a worthy finish. Yet it is still a viable finish. Ruins wood? The box you see below is finished in the fashion I described above. It is very old chestnut and you know, it doesn’t look even remotely ruined. In fact, it looks pretty decent. Maybe it is just me, but if it looks ruined, please tell me so.

The proof is in the end product.
