I want to use a tung oil finish on a solid cherry dresser that I am refinishing. Should I use a sanding sealer brfore the tung oil?

I normally use a sanding sealer only under spray applied lacquer finishes in order to assure a smooth surface for the finish. I personally would not use a sealer under tung oil. It funcitons as its own sealer. Multiple coats can be applied to incrase the smoothness and adjust the sheen.
