I have found several nice pieces of driftwood down by the river I just took a wire grill cleaner and scrubbed any dirt/bark I could get off of it and dropped it in a tank weighted down with rocks.
some people boil theirs I would but my pieces are usually too large, I like to find driftwood that looks like roots of a tree or of course you could just go into the woods it doesn't have to be from a Lake/River. you can use pretty much anything.
Like someone mentioned earlier a good test is density if it's really light and soft then I would find something else.

good luck
