Baking Wood

We were (fiance) baking some driftwood and soaking wood for the tank, but while it was baking one of the logs caught a little on fire so it has a little burn damage....is it still safe to use? Is there something I can do to make it safe if it isn't?

You baked a log?? That sound like a fire hazard . . .
If its burnt I personally woundnt use it, it might leech stuff into the water.

Damage was minimal, as you can see from the picture.....any other inputs? Anyone recognize the wood?

I wouldn`t the burn`t part would dissolve quickly into the water causing problems if a fish eats it or it will change water parims.

The facebook link doesn`t work.

If you look at the picture, can't see damage and it's been soaking since then

I don't think it would cause a problem, I also have burnt wood in one of my tanks and have no problems.
