I think he means that he has 1×2x12 lumber that is finger jointed. Like what you would see on clam molding. I am a carpenter and lately we have been ripping down redwood decks. I’ve been saving some and surfacing the boards. I use them for inlays and small boxes. They also make beautiful bandsaw boxes.

Glue them up with the joints offset to make wider boards and make some benches with them.
