Having seen Uncle B's stocks first hand, I would have to say his route is the one I'm going down with a new rifle.
I also thought his regime  for oiling was easy to remember and made sense:

once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for a year and then once a year.

He's a wise old dog I reckon. ;)

I've used that myself, and gained very good results from it.

Did you use 'grain sealer' on the stock first?

The use of sealer would have meant the required/desired finish was achieved sooner, with less effort and using less oil, that's all.

I have never used a sealer, just hard work rubbing the oil in.

This one worked out OK.
