I made this simple cribbage board from a cribbage-board-sized piece of curly maple that I had. The drawer is made from 1/8” cherry. The knob is made from an 1/8” dowel.
The most enjoyable part of making this was the little drawer. Here are the drawer pieces ready to be glued.
Here is is after glue-up.
I cut the little rabbets (are they “bunnies”?) on the table saw using one of the outside cutters from my dado set. I cut the bottom one while the piece of cherry was still larger. When cutting the rabbets on the sides of the pieces, I taped them to some larger pieces.
The mortice that holds the drawer was started with chisels and competed using a router plane with a 1/4” blade.
Now I need to remind myself how to play cribbage. I played many years ago. Recently, the rest of the family started playing, so I will be doing some catch up.
