Odd object lifting and bodyweight exercises

I would like to develop a routine based on odd objects lifting and bodyweight exercises. I would like to work the whole body without neglecting any bodyparts but I want to keep a low volume. What would you consider as the essentials exercises?
This is my ideas:

The three main bodyweight exercises:
Dips
Chins-ups
One-leg Squat


Other Bodyweight exercises:
Hand-Stand Push-ups
FingerTips push-ups
Sit-Ups
Jumping Squats
One-Leg Calf Raise

If you have other ideas, it would help.

And for the odd object lifting, I have no ideas of wich exercises to use. What would be the main movements? Maybe a kind of clean and press. What do you think?

    For bodyweight exercises you might want to add the one-handed push up and the towel chin up to your list. As for odd objects, you'd really need a strongman to give a full list but I believe the most effective exercise of that kind is the stone lifting (Atlas Stones - Pick up a big round stone, put it on a block, repeat.)

    interesting routine J5. I wanna get stronger, but I also want to get bigger, would that routine work for size also? Because it seems really fun.

    Thanks Johnny, this is exactly what I wanted. It seem hard, it seem fun. I will finish my actual routine and I will try this one. I think I will do that once a week and the bodyweight exercises once or twice a week.
