DIY Danish Oil: How to Make Homemade Own Danish Oil
Danish oil is a general purpose natural finish for wood. It adds depth and richness to any wood species and protects and seals at the same time. It is extremely easy to apply or reapply with a rag, and it is not sticky or toxic like most off the shelf stains and finishes.
There is no one definition of danish oil but generally, it refers to a mixture of oil, some type of varnish or polyurethane, and a thinner. A couple of brands make their own "Danish oil" and don't disclose the exact recipe, but it is accepted that it is some combination of these three ingredients.
I'm going to show you my very basic recipe that you can then tweak as you get more experienced with it.
