I made this farmhouse chair to match the dining table that I build from Shanty-2-Chic website. For this project its important to use wood glue on all of the joints so that it would stay together for a long time.

Cut and Notch the Back Cross
Next we'll make an X for the back of the chair. Using Miter Saw cut 1x4 to provided dimensions from cut list and notch the middle section to half of the board thickness which is 3/8". You will need to make two of these.
Assemble the Cross
Make sure to use wood glue when putting this together. Attach the upper and lower boards to the X. Use clamps to hold it all boards in place and then using nail gun attache the cross to the bottom and top boards. The upper and lower boards will have one pocket hole on each side.
Assemble Back and Front Legs Together
Assemble side of the chair using 1 1/4" pocket hole screws. (x2)
