Default Do I need to use wood sealer on an IKEA cage?

I'm really hoping to build a billy cage from IKEA but do I need to use a wood sealer on these types of cages such as plastikote? Please help

IKEA furniture will have a waterproof coating on it already so no need to paint with plastikote unless you have a raw edge of surface. However you will need to seal inside the cage with aquarium sealant.
