How can I go about putting Tung Oil on a bookcase made of Chinese fir?

the wood is Chinese fir, and has no finish. Can I rub it down with steel wool? What fineness of steel wool should I use? Should I apply the Tung oil with a brush, or lint free cloth? I do not want to stain it, just Tung oil or Teak oil. The wood is a light shade, and I want to keep it that way, just protect it.
