I’m very skeptical about oil as wood hardener. It might be better than nothing but that isn’t the same as being a good hardener. And while I love oil and wax finishes, they are a bad idea for coffee tables. Awhile back someone posted a tip about thinning epoxy to use as a stabilizer, I want to try it one of these days. I’ve used CA glue to stabilize/harden punky wood and it works well but obviously would be too expensive for a tabletop.
