I have had issues getting darker color on end grain (walnut & maple boxes). I was using Watco Natural Danish oil. I asked Charles Neil for suggestions (he is VERY helpful) & he suggested first wiping the end grain with a damp cloth the immediately apply the oil. According to him it sounds nuts but helps a lot & doesn’t affect the adhesion.

He noted other options too, but this sounded really interesting. I’m going to try it on some scrap pieces this week.
