I did, too! For years. And then one day, I thought "hmmmm".
I don't leave too many wine bottles filled on the door, as I'm worried about weight (and beer bottles aren't nearly as big), so I fill them and lift a few of them up off of the door and up onto the counter.
It's really easiest if you have a helper. If Bob can help, I fill them on the door, and then he lifts them up onto the counter and then corks them. Then he replaces the bottles with empty ones from the bottling tree. Sometimes I just sit on the floor and fill, if he's helping and I"m doing a 6 gallon batch. It's pretty slick!
