Question about Driftwood


So if a piece of driftwood is crumbly, and you can break pieces of it with your hands, it's probably not good to use, right?

A good piece of driftwood should be hard enough not to break it I'm assuming?

Yes it should be solid, firm and not give to pressure.

If you can press your thumbnail into it, don't use it.
