Is it alright to apply stain over danish oil? I put a coat of oil on a table then found a stain I would like to use. I think it’s OK but thought I’d ask first. I’ve been in trouble enough already on this table.:-)

You can do it if the Danish oil has fully cured, but you won’t get as much penetration—so not as dark of a color—as with raw wood.

Jerry says “fully cured” and I think that makes sense though I haven’t had negative experience myself. (I also have not tried what you’re thinking of.) It may splotch. Wait the full week.

Thanks for the info. It’s been a couple of weeks since I put the oil on. I’ll give it a few more days and try the stain. I’m not in a big hurry. Thanks again.
