Question live edge yellow cedar

Hello , I have about 30ft of yellow cedar some one chain sawed planks and let them dry for 10 years or so. They are very brittle and edges brake off easy. Id like to make some shelf's out of them but not sure how to keep the live edge from splintering. How can I harden this material , and what finish would be best.
