I found this on another website and thought I would share it here. It seems to be the safest way to cut a factory looking handle in boxes that we build ourselves using a tool made for tire work.

Heres the website for the tool.

And heres the link to the website explaining how they did it.

The poster's screen name is Carlinmo and he has a link to a picture of the handle that it cuts out. The tool however isnt  cheap at all-I know cuz I just ordered one but they are supposed to last a lifetime and I think they would be way safer than the plunge technique on a table saw that Im using now as well as the moulding head cutter that Ive looked into.  This tool is used on a drill press and produces a darn nice looking handle.

Yes, it is expensive and yes I know the arguments of nailing strips on the sides for handles, but I just like the look it produces with less risk of losing a finger or two in the process.

hmm. sorry. The tool is made by the Oliver Corporation under the brand name of Rubberhog. The website is more than a little difficult to navigate but what you are looking for is a Flared Contour wheel. If you click on the Rubberhog icon, scroll down and on the left it will say 'Product Groups'. Click on that and it will bring up the wheels.
