I do a lot of hand tool work, so do all my jointing with hand planes. A little practice and they come out nice and clean in just a couple passes after the bandsaw cut—better than a powered jointer, for sure. For glue edges, I do match jointing (both edges at the same time) which makes it very easy to get a really tight joint. It’s not for everyone, but is an option that is much easier to become proficient at than most people want to believe.

There’s a bit more info in this blog post

A router table properly set up could easily clean up a bandsaw cut edge, if you wanted to go that route.
