See my pics.

The thicker wire is the output and technically considered the secondary.

Who's on top matters very little.

In most production transformers the thicker wire is wound on top to prevent mechanical damage to the fine wire.

See the four winding styles each is done for a particular advantage.

Thanks for your input! I shall correct my errors. I have another question if you dint mind, If I use 3. 100 ohm resistors all in series will that give me the 300 ohm resistance I want?

Yes three 100 ohm resistors in series, simply add up to 300 ohms.

While you are at it if this was helpful, a click on the best answer would be appreciated.

BTW three 100 ohm resistors in parallel are 33 1/3 ohms.
