Woodworking as an Exercise
The beauty of woodworking is that minus the cost of tools and wood, it is relatively inexpensive. You can make lots of things around the home that you need / will use, and you will burn lots of calories during the process of making them without really noticing that you are burning them - because woodworking is itself fun.
All the calorie burns listed below are for an individual who weighs 200 lbs, and a time of 1 hour.
Painting or Wallpapering - 186 calories burned.
General Carpentry - 286 calories burned.
General Painting - 319 calories burned.
