Depends on your objective. Do you want a mirror smooth glossy finish? You need to fill the pores. If you want a more natural real wood feel, then a couple coats of tung oil or wipe-on poly, sanding between coats, will give a durable but still natural look. Personally, I like the feel of wood, so I’d not fill the pores.
