Until I get my dust collector piped to the entire workshop, I needed to use something other than my shop vac to collect planer chips. The sheer volume of sawdust created by the planer required me to build some type of receptacle that is large and easy to empty. I used inspiration from John Heisz and came up with my own semi-cyclonic, trash can chip collector.
