How do you hardscape with Manzanita?

Hi, saw a few amazing set ups here at plantedtank.net hardscaped with Manzanita wood. Then I did a little research and asked a few question from a few guys responsible for those awesome set ups. They had all recommended manzanita burlworks. So I finally order a small $30 aquarium package. To my surprise, half the box was filled with plain sticks. The other half were decent looking. Below is the two pictures of the entire order from Manzanita burlworks. Any suggestion on what I can do with the sticks? How can I get it to "stand up"? How do you guys scape with manzanita?

Right now I'm soaking the wood because they all seem very dry.

Thanks
billy

Not bad for $30... Try tying them together as a bunch.

I'm using these wood for a species only tank, by species only I meant various Fissidens mosses will be the only plant for this tank. When I get it all together maybe I'll do one of those journal thing. It's always facinating to see people's tank progress.

The last thing left is waiting for the mosses from the guy who's ad is blinking on the upper right hand side of my computer screen.

btw, I'm in Manhattan, I'll let you know if I'll have extras.
