Large "lego-style" blocks

I remember seeing somewhere a post either here or somewhere else about using a CNC machine to make largish “lego-style” blocks out of, I think, 2x4. If I recall correctly, the project used a couple of jigs for easily flipping the block over to carve both sides. I’d like to do something myself along that lines but don’t know the dimensions to scale it up. Does anybody recall seeing the post in question, or know where I can get dimensional drawings of the various blocks?

Was it this?

That’s not the post I’m thinking of, that one makes regular size Lego blocks. The one I’m thinking about has a jig to hold uncut 2x4 while the top was milled out, then pockets that the block fit in to when it was flipped over. With the dimension post you linked I should be able to recreate it.

Perhaps something here? https://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Online_resources#Toys

I found the original post, not many details it seems https://imgur.com/gallery/6l8uJ
Also a video of it being cut https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVoumAWs4cU
