I saw my white oak at 1 1/8” thick. Most times, it will plane to 1”, but 100% of the time it will plane to 3/4”. I would always buy rough sawn and mill the boards yourself to target size, that way, you can get the boards perfectly flat right before you use them. It is hard to get perfectly flat boards that have already been planed by the lumber yard and have been setting on the rack for months.
