I know boiling helps prevent cracking in other difficult woods. Steaming should do the same. It might be worthwhile to steam your honeysuckle before you dry it to help relieve some of the internal stresses.

You can also slow the rate of drying by sealing the ends or covering it in sawdust or wrap it in brown paper bags.
