Winding Your Own Transformer

Hello Everyone, I am currently in a project that would use a mains transformers in reverse. The project is basically a microphone power supply. I was then adviced that the 60Hz transformer will not work well at 100KHz, since the core would incure very high losses, and it would be better to wind my own transformer or have one specifically made for my design.


I haven't wound my own TX before, and that sounds like somethng fun to do, so I'd like to ask for some help. Where do you start? How would you calculate the frequency and what materials are best used?


And what things should I look out for?
