Are oils suitable for waterproofing wood?

Yes, Oils are suitable for waterproofing wood. Using a paintbrush, apply an oil finish to the wood, such as linseed oil or tung oil. Allow the oil to absorb and dry overnight before inspecting the coat. Apply a second (or even third) layer, if the depth of the oil finish isn’t to your liking. Allow two or three days for it to cure.
