You coat the ends of logs to keep them from drying out too quickly…causing checking. Once sawn there would be no point in coating the ends of the boards. Coat the ends of the cants you didn’t get sawn up.

A fan would decrease the drying time somewhat. Dehumidifier is good. After a week or so you probably wouldn’t need the dehumidifer. The largest portion of moisture should be out by then.
