If you leave it on the log, even with the glue, it will crack eventually. And it will take years to dry.

I’d cut out some shapes that you would like to put on the lathe, turn them about 50-60% of the way green, and allow that to dry. Putting them in paper sacks slows down the process, and helps with cracking. There are other methods, probably better.

Clarification, I know absolutely nothing about avocado wood. I would expect it to be like peach, apple or other fruit woods.
