The router table can do this type of job but you will need to add a pin router setup to copy the inside 1st..,,of the handle, then use the trim bit to finish it up and the round over bit...
here's link to a pin router setup for the router table,,,I have one and they do work well for this type of job....
Daisy Pin Router http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shops.../daisypin.html
Make exact copies of ANY shape! The NEW Daisy Pin Router easily attaches to any router table, and performs operations similar to machines costing hundreds of dollars more.
Make unlimited, exact copies of shapes from either inside or outside patterns. Repetitive cuts are easy and error free.
The large, 8" arm, reaches to the center of a 16" wide piece.
Includes four steel pin sizes (1/4", 5/16", 3/8" and 1/2") and instructions.
I should also say you can use the Craftsman Router Recreator ,that you can get off eBay at the right price, about the same as the Daisy Pin Router ( see a picture of the one I use below)
Plus if you are lucky Template Tom and Harry Sin will see this post and may have one more way to do it..
