            Hello and welcome!

            I love the look of driftwood, I bought a small piece from a craft stand a couple of years ago which, like you say, I don't think had had much done to it. Would love to see some pictures

                        Hey your work is amazing. Tell me more, How do you do that? I love drift wood.

                        I have a funny to share.
                        My family and I where on holiday with the in-laws this year in Wales, Easter time. I had a windfall and had collected a huge pile of driftwood, very pleased with my haul, the biggest ever. Anyway we went out one day and left mother-in-law at the chalet. The next day I went to take a closer look at my finds. Shock horror they had gone.
                        “Where is my drift wood” I asked.


                        She replied, “What those sticks”? “I thought the kids had brought them in, I’ve thrown them in the bin”.

                          oh dear i would of been mortified if that happened...the pieces we have are left to dry after some soaking and scrubbing ..some pieces are bleached for about 2 to 3 days some people even resort to putting them in the oven but our pieces are far to big for that so a good old scrub does the trick and a jet wash to get all the grit out
