How to prepare large pieces of driftwood?

I have a question regarding prepping larger pieces of driftwood. With smaller pieces I usually boil for hours and then soak until waterlogged and most tannins are leached out. But what to do with pieces that too big to fit in a pot? How have you prepared larger pieces? Thanks

I not sure where I read this information, but I remember reading that boiling driftwood can make it susceptible to some sort of fungus or bacteria. I'm going to be using a nice new piece of wood in my tank this week. Does any one know anything about this issue?
