    Boiled has solvents and drying agents which may affect the color of some woods in a negative way. RLO is just raw pressed oil, takes longer to dry but wont affect the color of any woods in a bad way, plus it smells way better.

    raw is pressed from the seeds and nothing more, its food save but dries real slow, really really slow

    boiled has gone through a process that changes the oil chemically making it quicker in drying, but also makes it poisonous

    i love the coloring of the wood, many woodworkers use it to raise the richness of the grain and color of the wood but thats all personal taste
