Happy to help, Will! Rust-Oleum Watco Danish Oil can be used on bare wood. Since the species and cut of the wood will affect the final appearance and color, we recommend applying in a test area first to ensure the desired results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Glad to lend a hand. Rust-Oleum Watco Danish Oil is recommended for use on wood surfaces only and would not be able to penetrate or dry in wicker correctly. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5
Thanks for contacting us, Billy! As mentioned on the label of the Rust-Oleum Watco Danish Oil, rags, steel wool, or waste soaked with the product should be placed in a sealed water tight container. For disposal of rags, or unused product, we do suggest you contact your local or state government environmental control agency. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 1
Yes sand it all off. Then the stain, then the oil, you will probably have to do a few coats of the oil to get where you are trying to go. Hard to say without seeing the wood. Also, after using the 80 grit I would try maybe a 220 grit after just to smooth it out a little.
Yes, works well on all woods. I use on both Woodturnings and furniture. Follow application notes because this oil does penetrate well. I have been using Watco products for years. Enjoy.
I've covered stained wood with Watco Danish - yes, as long as it was stain only (not a stain with any poly in it). Make sure your stain has completely dried. Then follow directions on the can. For best results, follow that with a good quality wood wax. You won't have much luck staining a finish you've already applied Watco to (or any oil finish). The Watco should come last.
Yes I believe you can. I used it on a hardwood outdoor furniture set and it worked great. It absorbs very well like teak oil but leaves a semi permanent finish unlike teak oil that you need to reapply every year.
One coat is sufficient to seal the wood; the second coat will add greater durability and any touch-ups are easy.
We like how you think, Donna. Rust-Oleum Watco Danish Oil Finish is a unique blend of penetrating oil & varnish that stains, seals, and protects in one easy step. Danish Oil penetrates deep into wood pores to protect from within and to enhance the natural look of the wood. Keep in mind that this product needs to be applied to bare wood in order to perform properly. Ensure the wood is dry and that all previous coatings such as paint or varnish are completely removed.
