Maybe that will loosen the bark. Could you let me know how it works out for you?

DIY Driftwood I made

Just wanted to share some driftwood pieces I made of a japanese maple tree.

It was all fresh wood so I had remove the bark. With some I carved it off, others i power washed. My next step is to let it dry.

This piece is less than 10 inches




One of my favorites










This is the biggest piece. Around 30 inches


Texture


I plan of using the largest piece of driftwood in this tank.


Same tank next to a 29g to get a idea of the size.
