It seems CAU members use primarily ADA stuff. You might want to call/email either Aquaforest at SF or ADG.

Alternatively, Drs. Foster Smith sells something called Malaysian Driftwood.. They are self-sinking and pretty nice looking. I've had a small piece from a LFS before. But you can't pick the pieces so you might not get something that you like. Though the prices (even with shipping) is reasonable. Last year at Xmas they had a free-shipping promotion. So you might want to wait and see if the same deal come back this year.

Aquaforest is great. Here are there prices,

the ADA driftwood pricing are as follow:

Small: $9.00 approx (5"~ 8")
Medium: $18.00 approx (9"~12")
Large: $28.00 approx (13"~15")
X-Large: $38.00 approx (16"~22")

Also All about fish in long beach carries ada driftwood, and sells them by the pound. I don't know if he ships though.

Another option -

Floridadriftwood's Aquarium Plants & Driftwood

I have purchased from them and was happy with the product.

I'm lucky enough to get my driftwood from a friend who opened a LFS here locally. I can sort through 100 gallon tub filled with wood when I need a new piece!

I just bought a large piece from Ted. His inventory seems to update quite frequently. I just bought a piece last week..and to tell you the truth I have neve bought a piece of driftwood as nice before. It sank right aways and has not leeched color into my water at all.
