Is the water that you are boiling the driftwood in still turning into a brownish color? Is the driftwood sinking yet? I usually boil the rocks to kill any unnecessary parasites, germs, etc.
It sounds like you did everything correctly.

Sounds fine to me mate. If your wood sinks you are good to go. Check if the stones have veins running through them. If they do it could leech metal into the water.apart from that good work
