I just throw mine in a drum and forget about it. This way they are ready to sink once they are needed again. I have some floating plants in the drum and a few guppies to take care of the mosquito larve....

i would suggest that you keep them immersed in a tub or barrel if you can, with a few guppies to prevent breeding of mosquitoes. Since your wood is already immersed in water and has sunk, you can easily keep is in the sun and wrap it in plastic and store it.
To use again you will have to keep the wood immersed in water much earlier that you propose to use it. ( Basically you will again have to give it sinking time!!! But it will sink fast so no worries!!!). YOu may give it a wash in potassium permanganate before re-use.
