What do the directions on the can say? The Danish Oil I use (Watco) takes a week or more to cure. I wouldn’t mess with any glaze or other topcoat until the DO has cured. I’m not familiar with the glaze coat you are talking about so I don’t know what kind of surface preparation might be required before you apply it.

I agree with Gerry. I’m not familiar with using glazes, but I wouldn’t put anything on top of four coats of Danish oil for at least a week.

I wouldn’t use danish oil under an epoxy as you are putting a hard finish over a soft finish. Might be fine but my worry would be cracking down the road.
