A quick google search turned up this:

70 calories an hour for the chair dips - couldn't find anything about wood chops but I'm guessing the calorie burn is similar.

Are you using the WebMD Food & Fitness Planner ? How is it working for you?

http://www.caloriesperhour.com/index_burn.php uses the most accurate data you will find to estimate energy expenditure. It's based on something called the Ainsworth Compendium of Physical Activities. Nothing you find online will be more accurate. If you cannot find chopping wood select an activity that is similar. And keep in mind that no matter how good the data is, there is always some error when estimating calorie expenditure using tables.
