So ive been pondering making my own driftwood. Theres different ways for people to do so but heres mine...
Went on a walk with my daughter through the trails. Found a whole bunch of branches and logs that i kept in mind for my walk back. On the way back i gathered probably 6 or 7 branches. Got back home, put her down for a nap and i began stripping the wood of its bark.
Next i will sand it down so to make it more even looking without all my knife marks. Next is where i take a couple different angles at it. I have some wood thats clearly ready to go and some thats still a bit green. The stuff thats ready to go, i plan on either breaking it down to smaller pieces to make boiling an easier task. The green stuff is going to sit on my back porch and dry out for probably a month as well as sit next to my fire pit as i burn woood to try and make the drying out process faster.
Next after i get everything broken down to manageable pieces and boiled im going see what i can do to make them look as one piece. Possible fishing line or maybe just wedged together kinda with a rigged jointing.
Heres 3 of the 6 or 7 pieces im working with.
