Hi, and welcome to Lumberjocks!

Actually, Anchorseal and other products like it are just variations on paraffin and/or beeswax.

Get some paraffin, or if you want beeswax (go to some churches near you, Roman Catholic and Anglican, they will have TONS of beeswax candle ends left over), melt it, and paint it on the ends of the logs. This will give you a great seal and prevent all checking. It also will adhere nicely to the wood and not chip off that easily, but can be turned off or sawn off with ease.
