Check out this finger jointer:

There are also automatic crosscut saws that detect
knots and cut the parts in between to random
lengths for finger jointing.

I doubt you’ll find finger jointing very enjoyable.
I’ve had good results doweling end-to-end joints.
Without something holding the ends together
the wood swims around when you glue up layers
to make a wide board and there are gaps. My
work bench is made this way and the gaps are
not a hindrance but for a nice table they would
not look good.
