Well I am finishing molding in a bathroom.  So humidity will be a challenge.

That is why I am chosing water based poly on top of oil based stain/dye.

I don't like the Danish oil as a finish.  After I apply it the piece looks like it is unfinished to me strictly for it's lack of.  Poly gives the best shine but I prefer lacquer and shellac which seem to have more of a satin look.  The lacquer smells the house up for hours if used indoors so I only use it if I can be outside to apply it.
