I bought a medium sized piece (12" or so) of branch wood. It's been soaking for about 4 days now. I have it 100% underwater held down by a rock.

It still floats... How can I get it to sink? Other than tying it to a rock or drilling a hole in it.

You can try boiling the wood; that may help to waterlog it.

Sometimes, the choices are weight it ... or wait for it. :)

I bought a package of driftwood and went about trying to get it to sink. I don't know what kind of wood it was but some of the pieces spent about 2 weeks boiling before they would stay down.

easiest way would be to boil it, you can tie a piece of slate to it as others have said but I never go with that option. You could also just wait for it to waterlog naturally but that could take weeks/months to be honest, patience is just once of those things you need to have in this hobby :)
