Love the grain in that cribbage board. For the peg holders, I did what you wanted to do and practiced with scrap wood. I ended up installing large dovetail bit in the router table and then experimented with the height so it just went deep enough to slide a metal “door” (As soon as you try a couple, you will know what I mean.) I then used a thin awl like carving chisel to make groves in each side so that there was enough meat to hold the door in place.

You will then need to hollow out the center of the slot. I have used a mortiser, a forstner bit and a router. Remember, the board has to be thick enough so the slot does not run into the peg holes.
