While I didn’t try anchorseal, for the logs I used interior/exterior grade white latex, I have no splits longer then 2 inches for the small stuff that could go in a pot I used parafin wax and had no splitting. Drying took about 5 months except for the 3” board. Basically I put they in the shop with a dehumidifier for the first month and kept a fan blowing over them for 2 months. After that it hit late spring which means my shop gets too hot. Over the summer it hit 120 for about 2 weeks straight, by the end of aug the 5/4 registered ass 7-8 percent moisture while the 8/4 was at 10 and the 12/4 13%. Previous to this summer I did some 3 years ago in my basement and just used a fan. Did it in the fall and by spring between the furnace and hot water heater the wood was more then dry enough. Just remember to move the wood as well after a month, mine has been wet enough to saturate the stickers.
