Byrd-Krap The Name, History And What It’s About!

Hello my nickname is Byrd and “Pottsy” is my father. I’m currently the acting CEO of Built By Pottsy LLC. Back in the time frame of 2012 my father promoted me at 8-yrs of age to the acting CEO. I have taken great pride over the years to talk to him and help in many aspects of the business. One of the coolest things is the fact that he listens to my opinions and asks me for them. One of the first things I did as CEO was to help setup the Channel-lock scrap plier arrangement. We really take pride in turning Channel-lock scrap in to a cool unique Built By Pottsy item. Thanks for the support Channel-Lock!

At a young age I designed two little robot looking things, Dad welded them together for me and I had BJ Meyer powder coat them. I called them Marv & Marvet (Pictured Above) and you can find them in the back part of dad's shop watching over things. I wanted to start selling little things that I designed just like my dad. So on a Sunday afternoon dad came up with the name “Byrd-Krap” and he designed the logo and secured the domain name. That there is how Byrd-Krap was born.

Once Byrd-Krap was a part of things Dad figured he would use it. He has always been willing to help where and when he can, so over the years he used the Byrd-Krap web page as a place to run fundraisers and raffles to help local organizations and people. Chances are if you’ve been to the Byrd-Krap page over the last 4-years, it was more than likely for something he was doing.
