Danish Oil is a mixture of oil (boiled linseed oil) varnish(usually polyurethane its the cheapest)and thinner and is meant to be applied to bare wood. A few coats of wiping varnish would be fine for your projects.

If you can get it in your state…. the Minwax Wipe On Poly is nice and easy. Especially if wet shoes are an issue.

ya danish oil won’t be the best. its meant to soak in and the stain will somewhat seal the wood. go with a good quality wiping varnish or gel poly. i would recommend the following

Arm-R-Seal by general finishes
Seal-A-Cell by general finishes
Bartley gel stain
Rockler Gel stain (made by Bartley)

those are probably your best choices.

Have your say...
