I like the perforated press board idea. Someone posted at miter saw dust hood a while back with stripes of plastic hanging down from the top edge to keep the dust in the enclosure.

What are you using for dust collection – DC or shop vac?

I think that you might find as much if not more dust and chips sticking to the board around the holes, and not being pulled into the dust collection.

I have similar issue with mine and just go with the idea something is better than a huge mess. LOL
