Ultrawood 4: driftwood process

Support NatureHacker with Fluoride Free Tooth Brushing Formula

It turns out driftwood has some lignin removed wheras hemicellulose and cellulose remains unchanged.  We can use driftwood and then compress it or we can use driftwood as the starting material for any of the processes described in the ultrawood articles.

Using driftwood does not infringe on the Hu patents because the Hu patents describe lignin removal from natural wood, and driftwood is not a natural wood.  Also assuming extra lignin removal of driftwood will not be done, then no lignin removal step, chemical or otherwise, is needed at all.  Simply find driftwood, wash and soak in distilled water if desired, then press.
