Typically 1/4" less than what you start with. 4/4 becomes 3/4" thick, 5/4 becomes 1" and so on. That said, very often you can and will end up with thicker pieces depending on how flat the wood is to start with.

But keep in mind that 5/4 can easily become two 3/8"

If straight and not too rough, so can 4/4.
