If you want to use an oil, BLO is a lot cheaper and just as effective as tung oil. Personally, the one time I tried using oil on a previously finished piece, I found that some of the old finish was still on the wood….causing an uneven appearance. Still, if you choose to go ahead with the oil, from an appearance standpoint one coat will do it. If you use multiple coats be sure to allow some curing between coats, it can get gummy if you pile it on too thickly.
