Are they for personal use? Is it typical for drums to be segmented or glued in plys?

They are hopefully to sell. I would love to be a drum manufacturer instead of a cabinet maker. Typically, mass produced drums are bent plywood. Some are steam bent solid, and some are staves, which in my opinion are vastly better because the sound travels unimpeded down the grain of the wood from top head to resonant head.
