Was Bob using real Tung Oil , or Formby’s ?
Does their label say to sand between each application ?
Are you sanding because of dust nibs , etc. in the finish ?
Formby’s is 70% Mineral Spirits and the balance is modified soya and tung oil with Alkyd Resin.
Not much room in there for Tung Oil. It’s actually known as a wiping varnish and will take many , many coats to build up evenly.

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
