Cutting driftwood

I have this huge piece of DW in my tank and im wanting to figure out a better set up for this piece... some suggestions?? Otherwise ive been thinking of splitting it in half down the middle, since its already in the tank would i be able to cut it when its soaked? Will post a pic later

I have never heard of anyone doing that but depending on how you do it I think it's possible.

A powersaw (of any type) would probably bog down because of the water buy I would think a hand saw would do it.

I used a mitre/chop saw on some DW that was too large for a tank once. Yes, I cut mine when it was wet. A bit messy but it worked.
