I've been using Tru Oil on my last few wood projects. I like the fact it dries quickly (over night) and you can apply 4 or 5 coats to get the desired finish. I use my fingers for a brush and rub-a-dub. Use very light coats and 0000 steel wool between. A neat trick is to wrap a magnet in a paper towel and lightly go over the stock to pick up any left over steel wool particles between coats. You will be amazed how much the magnet picks up after you think the stock is clean. A lot of good videos on youtube how to finish gunstocks with it.

I use boiled lindseed on my axes and it takes a long time to dry. DON'T put it on heavy and let dry a long time or you'll end up with a sticky mess.
