Working on a new roombox - parquet

Hi everyone!
This weekend was looong, in Russia we had 4 day holidays, so I had a chance to start a new project. I can't really go into details right now, but I hope I'll show the whole thing pretty soon.
I finally managed to buy MDF, a bit hard to buy, all the shops that sell it don't work during weekends and are outside Moscow, but I found one. So I bought 6mm and 10mm sheets (2m X 3m). I'm going to use them for roomboxes and maybe one more dollshouse.
I started with the parquet - and that's when I loved my table saw. It's so easy to cut veneer with it! We've found a way to make some sort of jig to cut it evenly (if you're interested I can show you the whole process). As a result, it was possible to cut such little pieces:
And these:
After that I started working on a parquet, it's not sanded yet of course, not finished. At this point this is how it looks:
Our kitten was more than interested in the process, so he decided to have a look at it from the top of the roof of my dollhouse:)
I hope to show you the rest this week!
