Hi guys. I'm new to finishes. So far I've just been using oil & beeswax.

I've been considering Danish Oil and noticed there are some with varying levels of dark stain added. I was wondering how well those work. I am looking for something that will really maximise grain on a light colored wood. I don't mind in this case if the wood type will no longer be apparent.

Watco is the only one I've used. It's a quality product. Just a good Danish finish with some color. Penetrates a nice even color, and seals really nice. You'll just have to experiment with it and see what you like. It can be easily cut with thinner for a lighter color. Bout all I remember bout it.

Incon, throw some coffee grounds in your finish oil overnight.  The more the darker...
