In Response To: Oil for old Oak (Dale W. Key)

You will not be able to regenerate the consistancy of healthy wood in a situation like this. I think you may be able to to improve the look and condition of the wood with a boiled linseed oil thinned with turpentine to 25% of total volume. If you are intending to stain you will get the same thing with Watco oil stain and paint thinner, soaking well and removing the excess after 40 minutes. Repeat this 2 or 3 times if needed, and then finish.
