Question Gate Drive Transformer

I am building a gate drive transformer, for a HALF BRIDGE power supply, the A-AND-T-LABS power supply, www.a-and-t-labs.com

Since the company as it looks, is closed down, they are no longer responding to e-mails, however

I decided to build the power supply from scratch, I have all the parts now, assembled the PCB, all OK.

The only problem I have is the GATE DRIVE Transformer.
winding as follows

14 Turns Primary
12 Turns Secondary 1
12 Turns Secondary 2
12 Turns Secondary 3
12 Turns Secondary 4

The core I am using is specially designed for GDT, form Coilws.com
with AL6000.

Each secondary will drive a MOSFET IRFP450. to make 2 mosfets out phase 180 degree with the other 2 mosfets.

I am unable to make Secondary 1 and Secondary 3
180 Degree OUT OF PHASE with Secondary 2 Secondary 4

I tried to wind in deference ways, but I failed to make it work

ANY help with this issue is more than appreciated.

how to wind it in the right way to accomplish that!?

The only way to make them 180 degrees out of phase is to flip the "polarity" of the outputs.
