I have an old radio cabinet from the 30's that I'm preparing to
refinish. I stripped off all the old finish, sanded with 220, 320, 400
and 600 and now have a prepared cabinet. I'm using toning lacquer to
achieve proper color, however the question I have is the proper use of
sanding sealer. Does it need to be sanded after applied? I was under
the impression that it was used to seal the wood so the different types
of wood used to construct this cabinet would take the toning lacquer
equally. Is that assumption correct? Please help and advice is

All you'll really need on the sealer is a light scuff with 400 to
remove dust nibs or to give lacquer a "tooth" if the sealer is shellac
No dust and the sealer is lacquer based? Don't bother, as each coat
will slightly melt the previous. No "tooth" is necessary.
If you post the specific products you're using, I can be more helpful.
