It’s almost inevitable that it will crack. The physics involved almost guarantee it. The end grain over the whole surface loses moisture at the same rate, but the amount of tangential shrinkage at the outer diameter is much greater than the tangential shrinkage near the center. At some point the fibers will let go as the stress gets too great, and that’s when you get cracks. Even if you slow the drying down a great deal, you’re going to get the cracks…
