I was at Petco today and saw that a worker was showing a customer this wood he made. He had glued rubber coated magnets glued to the back of some wood he got. but he said he used poxy or something like that for something. I was wondering if anyone knew how to do this?

I would guess he was saying he used an epoxy cement of some sort. What would be the point of gluing magnets to the driftwood? You could probably do the same thing with an aquarium silicone, but I'm not completely sure of that.

If you use neodymium magnets, you essentially can have "moveable" driftwood, as exposed to permanently fixed driftwood, if you use epoxy.
