I put some Watco Danish oil (neutral) on a small piece, didn't darken but very little. The " rich brown" color is what I want. What did you use or am I doing something wrong or using the wrong oil?
Thanks

Neutral wouldn't change the color much. That's why it's neutral. You can use the dark Watcos.......
Medium Walnut Dark Walnut Black Walnut etc.

The Danish Oil I used was Moser's Danish oil from Woodworkers' Supply. I've noticed that their particular finish tends to be a bit darker than some other Danish oils.
Hope that helps. I'll post a couple of pictures to a.b.p.ww. Looking at the scanned photos compared to the current color, I think the color has mellowed somewhat in the past several years.
