From the picture it seems like you are planning that dust will go from your planer, up to the y-section and then down to the shop-vac.

If that is correct it will not work very well as the turn on the top is way to steep.
You should follow the air-stream from the source (the planer in this case) to the destination (the shop-vac).
In this you should have as few steep bend as possible so that the air and dust has a little resistens as possible.
