  As noted in another thread, oil finishes
  Posted by: ezwater on Nov-03-12 1:27 PM (EST)
 

in general contain a varnish component. The thinnest oil I've used, Minwax 209 clear, contains a varnish component.

But that varnish component is not as effective a sealer and surface hardener as quality spar or polyurethane varnish.

Others have pointed out that even thin oils like Minwax 209 leave only a very thin layer of penetration.

And I'll just say again that increasing moisture content will weaken wood somewhat. Epoxy and varnish minimize moisture infiltration. Oiling? I don't think so.
