You already had the answer there :) use Wood glue, the water based one, putt on a decent amount, 1-3 times on all the end surfaces, it wont penetrate more than 1-2 mm exept from where there is cracks, i do this on logs and burls to prevent cracking, it also makes me able to leave it in a dryer enviroment that normaly, the glue will hold the ends together and prevent fiber lenght cracking. The only drawback is that if you dry it faster, as you can With this technic, is that the Natural Wood fats/Oils dry more out of the Wood, and it gets harder to work in, but wery Nice to avid the cracking.

Dont apply to the sides, and if its a woodtype With thick barch i would take the chainsaw or a big iron and make length cutts int the barch so i get open Wood on the sides, the moist have to have a way to leave the tree.
