ive heard 1/4 was almost thick enough
Mine are 1/4inch and they're fine.

1/4inch is perfect but i've heard some people use 1/2. I think thats a little thick though.

1/4inch is for show purposes only. In theory you could ride on it but I dont know who long it would last. My fork isnt heavy at all, weight shouldnt be a problem. Laser cutter is best for cutting it out.
