Refinish Your Door Staff

Bob Winstead-

Door Refinishing Artist

I have been in awe of the natural beauty of wood from the time I was 8 years old. I remember refinishing our dining room table with my father when I was 11. I watched as he sanded the wood and guided my hand to show me exactly how to coat it with stain and urethane. I remember feeling surprised and excited as each coat revealed more of the natural beauty of the wood.  In the end our table was transformed from a dull, dry piece of furniture into a thing of beauty.  

Refinishing a door gives me the same surprise and satisfaction I got from refinishing that dining room table. As I sand away the dull finish and apply each coat of urethane the way my father taught me, I am captivated by the process and by the beauty that is revealed in the finished product.  I am surely very lucky to have the opportunity to work with something I love so much.

"Bob Winstead did an outstanding job on our weather-beaten front door. He removed the door hardware, stripped the door down to the bare wood, filled and sanded it, and applied multiple coats of stain. We were delighted with the final result, and would highly recommend him."

I have always loved working with my dad in his shop (I think I started bugging him to teach me how to use power tools starting when I was 5!) so I was very happy when he asked me to help out sanding and doing maintenance coats for Refinish Your Door last summer. I learned so much during that time and really enjoy the work.


I am finishing my junior year at Manchester University in Indiana studying pre-med. I am home for a bit of time now finishing the semester online and was excited when I was asked to help out at Refinish Your Door while I'm here. I enjoy being part of the amazing transformation of the doors, and of course, am happy to be working with my dad once again.
