All I use for wood is what I collect locally. I don't have a pot large enough to boil it in so I bake it for several hours. Then take it to a friend who has a sand blaster and blast off any loose or soft wood. This also brings out the grain giving it more of a weathered look. Userally it takes about two months of holding it down with a rock in the tank before it will stay. This may not be the recomended way but it's always worked for me.
