2/20/21-Well, we took photos we labeled 2020tank-0211(PHOTO) & 2020tank-0212(PHOTO) as Aquarium Pieces.  We were thinking that odds were that they would end up in a tank.  Some folks from Naples, Florida had something else in mind and got them before we dropped them on the site.  Yeah, I think they had a good idea(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO).  Great job Linda & Lloyd!  Just dropped some new pieces onto the LONG/FLAT WOOD section of the web site.  One of them 2021dwlng-0537(PHOTO) is a Super-Stud.

2/16/20-Russell Berry passed away last month.  When all is said and done, Russell will go down as the greatest "driftwooder" ever.  Russell was the Muhammad Ali of driftwood.  Over his lifetime he pulled enough pretty pieces of driftwood to fill the New Orleans Superdome.  No one could touch the quality that Russell was able to consistently produce.  He pioneered the driftwood business in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  Russell Berry will always be the foundation of what is happening with the business of driftwood.  There is Russell Berry pulled driftwood in the Piranha Exhibit at the Los Angeles Zoo, on the Cruise Ship Grand Princess, at the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island, Florida.  There is at least one piece of Russell Berry driftwood in all 50 states in the country.  And, he did this up to the end of his 81 years.  I am so lucky to have been able to know this man.  He was a full on character.  A one-of-a-kind.  I will cherish the memories of bullshitting with him at the picnic table at his "camp," as he called it.  And, negotiating with him over a load of driftwood at his office, which was the parking lot at the Manteo McDonalds, while he at his daily Fillet of Fish sandwich.  Getting the phone call that I needed to hurry up and come and see him as he had a "Trophy" for me to look at.  Lot's of "Trophy's" over the years.  Priceless memories.  R.I.P. Russell Berry-The Godfather of Driftwood(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO).

You asked for them.  We are slowly getting them onto the site.  Several new Medium and Aquarium pieces have been added to the site.  These new pieces can be seen by double clicking the MEDIUM WOOD section of the web site and the AQUARIUM/TERRARIUM section of the web site.  Several of them have already been sold as quickly as them went up.  We are trying to get more up.  You peoples have been keeping us too busy to get them all up.  Lots of new studs waiting outside to get photographed.  It will eventually happen.

2/1/20-You asked for small pieces for aquariums.  We got them.  Just added (16) new small Aquarium Pieces to the site. 2020tank-0177(PHOTO), 2020tank-0178(PHOTO), 2020tank-0179(PHOTO), 2020tank-0180(PHOTO), 2020tank-0181(PHOTO), 2020tank-0182(PHOTO), 2020tank-0183(PHOTO), 2020tank-0184(PHOTO), 2020tank-0185(PHOTO), 2020tank-0186(PHOTO), 2020tank-0187(PHOTO), 2020tank-0188(PHOTO), 2020tank-0189(PHOTO), 2020tank-0190(PHOTO), 2020tank-0191(PHOTO), & 2020tank-0192(PHOTO).  Please note that these pieces do not have to go into an aquarium!  If you want them to have the gray/weathered look, all you have to do is leave them out in the sun for a month.  Additional photos, dimensions, and pricing for these pieces can be found by double clicking the AQUARIUM/TERRARIUM section of the web site.

1/24/20-The following SMALL pieces have not yet been individually added to the Small section of the web site.  (PHOTO1) (PHOTO2) (PHOTO3) (PHOTO4) (PHOTO5) (PHOTO6) (PHOTO7) (PHOTO8) (PHOTO9) (PHOTO10) (PHOTO11) (PHOTO12) (PHOTO13) (PHOTO14)  These were cleaned last weekend.  When cleaned(pressure washed) driftwood takes on the burnt orange/brown color.  Every one of these pieces will weather/gray after about a month in the sun.  Yes, they will.  It is a fact of life.  It will happen.  For those of you that want weathered/gray driftwood, it will happen.  In the grand scheme of things, one month in your lifetime is not a very long time.  All of the gray pieces in this photo(PHOTO) looked just like the burnt orange/brown pieces after they were cleaned.  If you like the burnt orange/brown color, the driftwood will stay that color if you keep it out of the sun.  Some folks like the burnt orange/brown color.  I do.  I like the weathered look as well.  Either way, you cannot go wrong.  Get these while they are hot!     

1/6/20-
O.K. folks, we have done a lot of digging to try to figure out what is going on with the worlds oldest web site.  What we do know is that it it still working with Safari, Firefox, & Internet Explorer.  It had not been working with the newest version of Chrome that came out sometime right before Christmas.  We have the worlds worst computer engineer(me) working on it trying to get a couple more weeks out if it before we overhaul everything.  We just deleted posts dating back to 2013 thru 2017 on this updates page.  That seems to have jump started things to where it is working again with Chrome.  So, that being said, enjoy the worlds oldest web site for a couple more weeks.  Thank you for your dealing with the glitch over the past two weeks. 

12/23/19-Merry Christmas!  Yes, we are still here and we are taking Christmas orders.  We will be shipping orders as late as FedEx/UPS/US Postal will take them.  We are also aware that the ancient web browsing software for our site is not working with the newest version of Google Chrome that just came out.  We have to get through Christmas before doing what we have been putting off for years.  Yes, we are going to launch a new site with a browser that will be mobile and user friendly.  For the next few weeks you are going to have to deal with it.  If you can't get what you are looking for to pull up from the site, e-mail us at getdriftwood@obxdriftwood.com and we can send photos.

7/28/19-This one had been in the yard for months with the branches facing up.  It was a pretty nice piece, but it had been bumped out of the lineup(web site) over and over again as there were lots of others that were prettier.  I went on a cleaning binge a couple of days ago and drug it out to clean as it was filthy.  This one took a long time as it had obviously spent a lot of time in the mud on the bottom.  As I cleaned it, I did realize that there was some high quality wood hiding underneath.  After finally getting the branches up side clean, I flipped it over to do the other.  That is when the beam of light came down from above and revealed that this one was an "Oh My(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO)" Planter Piece!  Haven't had time to add dimensions and pricing to the photos.  Additional photos, dimensions(will be added) & pricing are available by double clicking the PLANTER PIECES section of the web site.  This piece will weather(gray) just like every other piece of driftwood if it is left out in the sun for a month.  If you like it, you better giddy up as this one won't last long....

4/26/19-When 2018dwlng-0456(PHOTO) left here for Portsmouth, Rhode Island, it was a really pretty piece of driftwood.  No one could have imagined what Marcus was going to come up with.  Without a doubt, this is one of the, if not THE most impressive customer creations of all time(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO)!  We are speechless here.  Someone really needs to call Coastal Living Magazine on this one.  Been bombing the site with new pieces.  They have been added to all sections of the site.  Check them out when you have a chance.

2/27/19-Here's another one that got buried.  We do not find too many Swamp Gum(Black Gum) driftwood logs that are in good enough shape to make a mantel.  But this one made the cut.  2014mantel17(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) didn't go far as it ended up 45 minutes up the beach at vacation home in Currituck, N.C.(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO).

2/15/19-They don't all end up in fish tanks...  2018tank-0131(PHOTO) left the beach last week for Elberta, Alabama for its new life as a Lizard Lounge(PHOTO).  We have been talking about is for years.  We have been selling them for years.  We are now targeting them when on the water driftwooding.  And, we finally have added a section to the web site just for them.  Introducing PLANTER PIECES.  Please bear with us as we only have a couple of pieces listed.  We will be adding new pieces to this section of the site over the next couple of weeks as we have lots of them!

Here at Outer Banks Driftwood, we do carry "Coastal Driftwood" that is pulled from an inlet(Oregon Inlet) and a coastal region(Outer Banks of N.C.) located on the East Coast.  We do not carry and sell wood promoted as "Coastal Driftwood," that came from an inland river running through a major metropolitan city that is not located on the coast.  And, no, we do not blow smoke at you pretending that we have some "Fancy Nancy" 5 step process of cleaning, pressure washing, drying, air blowing, and bristle brushing our driftwood that supposedly sets us above all of our competitors. We do own and occasionally use a pressure washer, when needed, to clean driftwood.  We do this when requested or when a piece is covered in marsh mud.  Pressure washing can and will take away the gray/white weathered look of driftwood that a lot of people like.  But, that being said, pressure washing can bring back the burnt orange look to a weathered piece of Red Cedar that others like.  Whatever floats your boat.  Just let us know.  And, if not done properly, pressure washing driftwood can and will splinter the wood.  A lot of times a good-old-fashioned garden hose with a jet nozzle is the better alternative.  No, we do not use "a specialty"soap nor do we ever plan on using a "specialty soap," as some of these miracle products can and will discolor driftwood.  For drying, we normally we use the giant orange ball of fire in the sky to naturally dry our wood, but at times we have to go the extra mile.  Our "mechanical" drying technique is...., yes the conventional oven that we use to quickly dry wet wood(that will fit in it) for rush orders.  We do not have an special air compressor to blow debris out of the nooks, holes, and groves.  But, we do have an electric leaf blower and we use it all the time on wood.  It will blow anything out of a piece of driftwood that is not permanently attached to it.  PS:  It is also a good tool to use to blow water out of your cell phone when you accidentally leave it in your Blue Jeans and hear it clanging around in the washing machine(this technique worked last week).  Cell phone still works!  Bristle brushing?  I am not even going there...  Anyway, also, there is no such thing as free shipping.  When was the last time the Post Office, U.P.S., Fed-Ex, or a Trucking company let you ship something for free?  We do not hike up the prices of our wood to sucker you into an impulsive free shipping purchase.  All that being said, I am not implying that there is no pretty driftwood that comes from an inland river that runs through a major metropolitan city, as I know there is.  I used to fish the waters of The Potomac River years ago and remember seeing a lot of pretty driftwood there.  But, our wood does come from the Coastal waters of the Outer Banks of North Carolina as advertised.  Folks, our goal is not to bamboozle you with gimmicks into supporting a side hustle.  This is a real business, it is not a hobby.  The goal here is to provide people with some of the best driftwood on the planet at an affordable price that is set to allow us to stay in business.  And, we work our butts of here to come through for you.  Enough of that.  Look what the ocean delivered yesterday(PHOTO) (PHOTO)!  This monstrosity was almost too heavy for three of us get out of the back of the truck.  Six new Small pieces of  driftwood were added to the site. An incredible aquarium/terrarium/taxidermist piece-2013dwsml-0122(PHOTO), a decorative extra-small piece-2013dwsml-0123(PHOTO), a extra-small piece with several knotty holes-2013dwsml-0124(PHOTO), a unique branchy piece-2013dwsml-0125(PHOTO), a really pretty decorative piece that can be positioned multiple ways-2013dwsml-0126(PHOTO), & finally one last good one for now-2013dwsml-0127(PHOTO).  Additional photos, dimensions & pricing for these pieces are available by double clicking the SMALL WOOD section of the web site.  Stay tuned as there is much more Coastal Driftwood to come......
  

Courtesy of Hurricane Irene, we currently have more driftwood in inventory(PHOTO) than ever before.  These are some of the prettiest pieces of wood that I have ever seen.  These are "Real Deal Holyfield" pieces of driftwood pulled from the waters of the Outer Banks of North Carolina, U.S.A!  Natural, unfinished, virgin, one-of-a-kind driftwood.  It is the best of the best.   

All wood is cleaned/washed of debris and shipped dry.  If you are looking for chemically treated driftwood shipped overseas from Malaysia, this is not the site for you.... 

A lot(more than 50%) of our inventory
(PHOTO) has not yet been listed in the site.  We are working every day on adding every piece(hundreds) available.  Bear with us as we add them on.  It is going to take a while.  Please take a minute to browse through the site and come back again as every day we are adding on.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Shipping is the toughest part of this business.  For the larger pieces of wood, there is no easy way to do it.  It is impossible to turn a profit in this business if we pay shipping.  We could double the price of the piece of wood to cover shipment like some sites do, or we can pass onto you our shipping costs.  Charging separate for each gives you the option of the much lower price for pick-up orders.  So, with that being taken into consideration, we pass our shipping onto the buyer.  Shipping for bulky heavy pieces can almost double the price you pay.  It is what it is...  We are always on the lookout for less expensive ways to ship and we are always open to suggestions.  We are located in Kill Devil Hill, North Carolina.  For those of you that vacation on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, we can hold purchased pieces of wood for pick-ups.  We do offer delivery service(by the truck & trailer load) for bulk purchases.  Shipping prices on web site are based on East Coast Shipping.  For those of you not located on the east coast, we can get your shipping cost a.s.a.p. 

Payment:  Credit card orders are processed through Pay Pal(on-line store coming soon).  If you e-mail(catchem@beachbumfishing.com) the piece/pieces of wood that you want, we will send a Pay Pal invoice to your e-mail address that will easily prompt you through the Pay Pal payment method.  We accept checks(once it clears-wood ships).  Checks are to be made out and sent to:  Outer Banks Driftwood/ 1816 Seminole Street/ Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina 27948.  Sales Tax applies on in state internet orders and retail pick-ups.  We can always be reached for any questions at (252) 449-0232.

Artists, Taxidermists, Landscapers, Wedding Coordinators, Pet Store Owners/Aquarium Dealers, are welcome!  Resellers feel free to contact us for special pricing.  Every piece of wood on this site can be custom made into almost anything by driftwood artist Mike Preusser.  Mike specializes in coffee tables, wine bottle & jewelry holders.
