can be personalised
Based on a traditional London Black Cab, this personalised taxi bird box will be a talking point in the garden.
Originally created at the request of a customer who wanted a retirement gift for her cab-driving father, the Black cab would also make a fantastic gift for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and many other special occasions too. It's great for Dads, grandads, couples and anyone else you can think of!
A number plate can be personalised (up to 15 characters), making that gift even more special.
The Taxi bird box comes in black but could easily be painted in other colours if required - just ask us to see what's available. Whether you're buying for yourself or someone else, the London Black Cab bird box makes a stunning addition to any garden.

Our personalised London Black Cab bird box is carefully handmade by us here at Lindleywood, We have been handcrafting our painted wooden boxes since 2008 from high-grade sustainable European redwood pine (known as Scot's Pine) supplied by a small local woodmerchant.They are then handpainted with water-based wood paints suitable for exterior use. These paints, by a very small independent British manufacturer from the northwest of England (who have been creating paints since 1773), enable us to create beautiful products that are non-toxic to plants and wildlife.
The roof lifts off for easy cleaning, the box comes with full mounting and care instructions (we even include the screws) and it is a usable bird box suitable for birds like sparrows and blue tits.
PLEASE NOTE that all items are individually handmade and personalised by us in the UK and each one takes time to produce. Because of the handmade nature, one item will differ slightly from another and may not appear exactly as in the photographs of other products. This means that each product is entirely unique and extremely individual!
Also note that as we make each item from wood there may some variation in grain. Over time there may also be movement in joints and surfaces. This is down to the nature of ‘real wood' as opposed to synthetic materials and we feel further adds to the individuality of each product.
The London Black Cab bird box measures approximately 22cm (h) x 18cm (d) x 24cm (w).
