Linseed oil will treat most any kind of wood, and almost anything will improve luan. Given time, it will penetrate all the way through. Glue layers will slow, and may arrest penetration. And, the oil may soften a glue layer in cheap plywood? However, you will not be able to glue any wood that is oily.
