Here’s a video of how I make wooden knobs for jigs and fixtures. Also has a segment on pronged t-nuts and threaded inserts.

Nice work Huck! When I built my Horizontal slot machine I made 5 of these just like yours. Good way to get some use from the scraps!

I’ve made pretty much identical knobs. I use a 2” hole saw to first just score the wood so you have your knob pattern then drill out your flutes. Then use the hole saw to drill out the knobs. Easy peasy.

Those knobs will be highly useful and it will be a source of pride to make them yourself.
