Bed wood dimensions

I’ve decided to make my own bed from some locally sourced rough sawn cedar wood stock. Can someone tell me the dimensions the wood planks need to be? (Length x width x thickness)

I’m guessing the thickness is key so that the edge boards can fit under the side rails. If my wood is too thick I would try to “notch” the edge of those two boards so they could fit under the rails. I don’t have a planer.

Thanks for any help.
