Cracking is typically caused by the ends of the board drying out faster than the sides and inner portions. An end coating of Anchorseal can help to seal the end grain and allow for a more even drying throughout to limit some of the cracking. Anchorseal Classic (vs Anchroseal 2) seems to be the better of the two and can be purchased direct from the manufacturer. For best results though, the ends of the wood should be coated as soon as possible after cutting. A variety of other products can sometimes help, though with varying results.
