compatable finishes?

I put a couple coats of boiled linseed oil and turpentine mixture on my maple bench top. Afterwards I saw a different mixture using some oil based poly,mineral spirits and linseed oil. I know that you can use poly over the oil,but what about mineral spirits over turpentine?. I don't want a real shiny finish,but thought poly thinned would soak in pretty good and give a slight shine. Any thoughts?(about this:) )Keith

turps/mineral spirits: no problem.
poly/linseed: no problem
linseed/poly: might have penetration problems. could be a maintenance issue down the road. or not....
