For Christmas, I am going to make a bunch of wine cork trivets. Does anyone have any suggestions as to the easiest way to cut them in half. I have tried the knife and that will be time consuming.... any other ideas out there would be appreciated.

What's the best way to hold the cork in place while cutting it in half?

Try and electric knife, the kind you carve meat with.

I bought a little coping saw in the hardware store and that seems to work just fine. When you get to the bottom, just hold the cork up in your hand and you can finish sawing in half. You can sand the cut edge with a piece of medium sand paper.

I use corks a lot, and invested in a table top band saw purchased on e-bay. Makes short work of halving them and I get twice the use! I don't suggest using a sharp knife as it is time consuming and beats up your wrist :)
Where did you find the forms to put the corks into to make the trivets?.. Please advise

A sharp knife will do, but why bother cutting them in half? I just used them whole when I did that.

i have an old scroll saw. It cuts corks really well.
