Danish Oil Isn't Drying

TomW in SouthJersey
>I finished turning a platter on Thursday night and applied a (sort of) heavy coat of Danish oil while the piece was still on the lathe by wiping while it was spinning. I waited about an hour and applied a second coat.
Its still tacky tonight. Will it eventually set or do I need to do something like wipe it down with a solvent and reapply? I'm guessing the coats were too think.
I put a lot of time in this one sanding all the way up to 4000 micromesh I hate to lose the finish.
Any suggestions?
