Shop cabinet finish

Just finished building one of my first projects. A shop cabinet with a pine frame and peg board. I put two coats of danish oil on it. Wondering what if anything people would put as a top coat since it is shop furniture.

Which "danish oil" did you use? Most products sold as a "Danish Oil Finish" are stand alone finishes containing a varnish, and need no further topcoating.

Thanks for the reply. I used "Watco Danish Oil Finish". And I understood that it could be used as a stand alone. Just wondering if something else would be recommended as a top coat since pine is so soft.
