There are several online calculators you can use to determine the angle to cut the staves and how wide to make them to acheive the size drum you want. Here is one. I simply searched for stave calculator and got several other examples as well. You basically need to know the diameter, wood thickness and how many sides you want to use. You may want to play around with the number of sides to get an easy angle to setup on your table saw. If you don’t want a base with straight sides, this splayed miter joint method might help you determine how to make those cuts.
