What Byron said is correct, However even drift wood from your LFS will float, as the water evaporates from the wood, causing it to float again, until it's again water logged. What I have done, is this. I use slate from roofing tiles from a local roofing company, Most slate is inert, and won't do anything to your water quality best to check it first. I then drill a small hole large enough for a screw, and then carefully screw the drift wood into the position I want it in, and then make it snug. I put the drift wood in first and the substrate over the slate. The drift wood looks as if it's in the substrate and you can't see the slate.
But be careful of the wood you find as Byron stated. Some bacteria may well be beneficial to your tank, but it can also cause it to crash.
If you want to see how it looks take a look at my aquariums.
