was wondering if there's anything 'wrong' with using the following combo There's nothing wrong with it per se, but there's no reason to use all three finishes. "Danish oil" type products1 can be used as finishes in their own right, as of course can Arm-R-Seal or High Performance. So the only reason to use a straight oil or blended oil finish first ...

I don't know anything about snakewood, but I'm guessing that the wet slurry ...

I got through a very similar situation using a toothing plane. They are good for weird grain and for very tough wood. In particular, they're good at not getting clogged in the way that's happening in your pictures. I like ECE's toothing plane but you can just buy a toothed blade to put in your metal planes. Some people really like using them with low-angle ...
