Mostly what I try to do at the lathe is capture the floating dust. You really can't capture all the shavings. If your really anal about it you can learn to cut with the gouge so the shavings all fall in a certain direction but I find I'd rather just use the gouge to it's best cut and let the shavings fly.
I use an 1100 cfm dust collector but as soon as I can get my new 220 line installed I'll attach my (new to me) 2300 cfm dust collector.
