Sounds like a great idea to me if you have the patience. Diana reports that repeated soaking and drying help it age faster. I know that dry branches with bark will lose the bark after a week of soaking but I haven't taken green wood through the whole process myself.

Small shrubs will make for great wood. The currently popular spiderwood is from Azalea bushes!
