I have been looking into building my own oven for powder coating. However I am interested in what it would cost to have it done.

I had someone do it - I have a friend with a powdercoating business. It's about $200 in labor + materials.. Costly? Yup. Durable and awesome looking? You bet!.

I made the mistake of having him sandblast it first as I was planning on welding, but I ended up bolting / riveting everything. They have to sandblast it again before powdercoating, to get any oils from your hands / whatever off of it. Better to just get the drum, make your holes everywhere, and then send it off for blasting / coating.
