All true oil finishes will look eventually the same. When it's all said and done, there's no reason to not just use boiled linseed oil.

If it were me, I would mix up a batch of some oil/varnish mixture. The mixture is equal parts of boiled linseed oil, your favorite varnish or poly varnish and mineral spirits. Wipe on, let set for 15 - 20 minutes and then wipe dry. Let is further dry overnight and apply again. The varnish/poly component in this will provide a much more durable and long lasting finish than just an oil.
