Let me share my design. The major difference is that mine has a cavity below the the miter saw level and my DC is connected at the bottom. That creates a good downdraft that captures a lot of the dust.

If I don’t have the DC on, I can literally see the dust escaping into the shop. With the DC running, I see very little dust escaping.

On the inside of the lower portion of the collection box the sides are beveled in to the center. I think that helps.
