For hand sawing a brush and dustpan works pretty good.

Planing produces shavings, which are messy, but heavier than
air. Most of the fine air-borne dust is produced by high-speed
cutting with power tools or the fine abrasive cutting of sandpaper.

I think you’ll find with hand-tool work the dust tends to fall
downward. You can encourage the dust to settle by spritzing
the air with water.
