This article might give you some ideas: http://www.software3d.com/TuteSpherical.php

It's not about using wood, but could be helpful.

You can also go to the unfolded net view or the 3D folding net view and use "Net->Show Edge Data->Dihedral Angles" or "Mitre Angles" to display these angles on the model. You could then use these to know what angle to cut the edges of each piece.
