Need help making driftwood...

Hey people,
My friend back in WI used to make driftwood and I was wondering how to do that? I moved to NE and ive looked around and most places have small driftwood and they almost all either have no driftwood or have plants attached to them (which i do not want!). Im looking for some driftwood that would fit/look well in a 40 gallon. So i want it to be bigger in size. A little bigger than this: http://theaquariumwiki.com/images/th...d_example1.jpg. I want it to look like that (have branches coming off of it and such). I need help figuring out how to make it aquarium safe and where to find some wood like this?

Go 7up!

Most interesting wood comes from the roots of the tree. Find a suitable piece of hardwood, preferably dead and soak it.
Join a fish club. Don't have one in your area? Start one.
