If you’re using bought plans it’s probably sized that way to use construction grade lumber. A 2x is easy to get to 1 1/8 with a couple of passes through a planer.

I’m with Ampeater. Check your local lumber yard or BORG and get some good construction grade. Pick your pieces carefully!

Alternatively, you could laminate 2 pieces together.
