i forgot to note that i barried the slate in the gravel when i did that.......

you can get a small massons bit at menards for like 4-5$ and the screws are prolly 50-60cents apiece.....

the plexy would be good idea to but slates got alil added weight to it..

malaysian driftwood its heavier then all the other wood i have ever gotten before.....thats the stuff that ted always sells....

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or hump it. Pee on it and walk away.

If you do strew the driftwood into a piece of slate make sure to use stainless steel screws.

All the malaysian driftwood I get in sinks right away. If you wanted to screw your piece of driftwood to a larger piece of plexi glass, then cover the plexi glass with substrate that will work.

ive allways atached a piece of slate by drilling a hole with a mason bit in the slate (go slow) and put a stainless screw in in wood.........

maybe a bigger chunk of slate.....it normally takes a few months to sink a dry piece i have one that floated for 6 months........

the stuff i buy from ted judy allways sinks but its HEAVY!!!

good luck

I'm not so sure on boiling helping with sinking, but boiling will help remove the tannis.

There are differnt types of woods all with varrying densities, those different densities allows them to sink while it causes others to float.

Depending on size you could boil it and then attach the slate. Otherwise I would try a larger piece of slate/rock.  I'm sure there are some other options, but I don't know them. I'm sure that someone with some more idea's will chime in.

I know it's been talked about before, but -i have a big piece of driftwood that has been dry docked for a few years. I have soaked it for 10 days, but it still pops up like a cork. I have tried attaching slate for weight, that did not work either.

Have any of you had any luck with this issue? I've wondered why the driftwood I buy at the LFS sinks right away & others don't.

Thanks ;D
