1) No ill effects, the arm will be less likely to spring back with four laminations instead of 3
2) Find something else to worry about.

It would be crazy to waste more wood than you use, just because the magazine article said to use 3/8”. There is no perfect thickness for the plies in a bent lamination, there is a range of sizes that work just fine. It’s a dance between making the curve and using available material.
