How do I make a cork hotplate?

I've made wine cork bulletin boards but not hot plates. I got a wooden picture frame and glued the corks to the backing. No glass needed. If you found a frame that was heat resistant, I think you could use the same technique. The corks go on two at a time alternating directions.
Recently I saw a wine cork hot plate that had no bottom and was held together very well. I was unable to find out what glue was holding it together. I tried hot glue, wood glue, and silicone glue. The results were poor. I was thinking of contact cement next?
