Response to I'd use a blend of Watco Danish oil and "boiled" linseed oil

 

It's my favorite finish for gun stocks, since it goes IN the wood, not ON the wood. And it matures with use and exposure, darkening over time. It does require patience. Someone once told me one coat a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for a year, and once a year for life.

If you are in a hurry, Maccari's Royal London Oil gives a beautiful finish, and is pretty easy to apply.
I think we're all Bozos on this bus.
