After you stain,and wipe it off like you wanted it set overnight to let the stain dry, then apply the danish oil. I usually apply a couple of more coats letting it set up between coats. I use either a brush or clothe for the danish, Be sure to dispose of the cloths while still wet.That is good to know. I don't believe I have ever tried in all the years I've been doing woodworking. Or at least my old feeble mind no longer remembers.
