How did you cut these slabs? Are they vertical rings or horizontal? How thick are they? No matter what, it sounds like you’re going to be letting these sit for at least a year before they go to the kiln. Some will crack, but that’s life, just saw it off and use what’s left. Most of us who buy rough cut are used to the waste, but we get a great price on wood that way.
If they are still wet there is some stuff you can put on the end grain that will help, but my sawyer doesn’t mess with it.
