I love the feel and look of driftwood, especially old planks and discarded peices of wood.  The patina that can occur when a peice of wood has been at sea for some time, the rusty stains and smooth, bleeched texture make this a fantastic material to design with. 

The best thing of all is the wood comes free, all you need to do is to look for it! 

I find the best places to find driftwood are at surf beaches and at beaches that people don't visit much.  It can take some time to find the right wood but who doesn't like walking on the beach ; )

On my last visit to the beach, I discoved an old palllet (beachcombing heaven) which had some great patina running along the wood.  I got the pallet home and this is the outcome of my attempt to design 4 different objects, each one made to showcase the beautiful things that can be found at the beach.



Enjoy.
