 i  tried  it  but  when  i  remove  the  rock  it  starts  floating  again.
 i  cant  keep  the  rock  tied  up  always  since  a  large  piece  of  rock  is  required  and  it  spoils  the  beauty  of  the  tank.

 Get  a  new  driftwood  if  you  cannot  wait.
 
 There's  nothing  much  you  can  do.  Tie   a  number  of  smaller  stones,  and  keep  it  hidden.

If  its  not  got  sinked  till  yet,  I  doubt,  if  it  will  sink  in  future!  IMO.
 
 Few  pics  of  your  tank  setup  and  driftwoods  will  help  us  to  give  you  more  prominent  answer.

 If  you  can  empty  your  tank,  attach  it  to  the  botton  with  silicone.

 @icecube
 i'll  not  suggest   to  attach  the  wood  at  the  bottom  of  the  tank  with  silicon  
 just  wait  for  sometime  if  you  have  no  hurry  and  do  as  madan  sir   &  rocky  bhai  told  you
 best  of  luck  Thumb Up

 @  icecube  -  Some  driftwood  take  a  long  time  to  sink.  My  driftwood  took  nearly  3  months.  You  just  need  to  be  patient.
 
 
 If  you  can  put  a  picture  of  the  driftwood,  it  could  help  in  giving  some  ideas.

 if  it  is  small,  you  can  try  boiling  it  to  expel  all  the  air  in  it  so  that  it  sinks

 Patience  my  dear  friend.  It's  been  nearly  4  months  and  my  driftwood  has  slowly  started  sinking.  Its  still  a  little  buoyant  though.  My  advice  would  be  to  just  hold  it  down  with  a  rock  and  forget  about  it.  All  the  best.     Thumb Up

 Put  it  in  a  gunny  bag,keep  wetting  the  bag  frequently.
 The  wood  must  absorb  away  the  water  from  sac  fast,henceforth  will  be  sink  sooner.The  closer  you  tie  the  bag  the  better.
 Worked  for  me.
 
 But  no  escape  from  the  tannis  Very Happy  .

 Patience  friend!
 
 I  tied  a  large  rock  to  my  two  driftwoods  and  just  dumped  it  into  our  huge  sump  for  about  a  month.  We  use  the  water  for  the  garden.  The  water  will  stain  if  the  wood  is  not  cured  properly.  Mine  was  relatively  clear  as  the  volume  of  water  is  high.  I've  pulled  them  up  now.  I  scraped  off  all  the  slime.Left  it  in  sun  for  a  day(the  wood  will  be  saturated  with  water,  only  the  surface  will  dry  up-  my  pieces  are  big!).  I've  put  the  three  pieces  in  my  4x2x2.  No  leaching  though  the  smaller  pieces  had  to  be  weighed  down.  My  sump  is  ready  for  a  thorough  cleaning  Very Happy  .  I  plan  to  divert  some  clean  rain  water  into  it.

 take  a  large  flat  rock.  boil  the  driftwood  and  the  stone  and  clean  and  dry.
 Decide  how  you  want  to  place  the  driftwood  in  your  tank  and  decide  on  which  will  be  the  base  of  the  driftwood.
 apply  clear  silicone  to  flat  face  of  the  rock  (a  good  quantity)  and  set  the  base  of  the  driftwood  on  the  rock.  Give  some  supports  and  allow  them  to  dry.  Silicone  should  cure  in  24  hours.  
 Place  the  siliconed  rock  and  driftwood  in  your  aquarium  and  cover  the  rock  in  the  substrate.
 This  way  your  support  rock  is  covered  up  and  your  driftwood  in  in  the  water.  No  need  to  wait  for  ever  for  the  driftwood  to  sink.
