Found Drift Wood, now what?

I was walking to my mail box and noticed this in the yard!! So I picked it up and sprayed it down with the water hose.

I love it!! Even has a big cave in the middle of it.

The only thing is it is to big for the oven or boiling. I don't want to cut it down..

What should I do?



That's a 5 gallon bucket it is in.

it needs to be soaked in the water to remove any tannins or other chemicals... also, it needs to be waterlogged in order to stay at the bottom of your aquarium... do you have a spare bathroom... you can fill your bath tub with water and weigh the log down... buckets wont work, as they need to be completely submerged.

maybe you can get a big plastic barrel at home depot or something...
