Right to left, under the bottom would be the winding direction according to customary screw machine (lathe) work. FWIW, I made a winding rig (spare 48V DC motor, .5 KVA x-former to isolate/halve incoming line voltage, variac, bridge rectifier, fence pickets, 2x4's, angle iron, and Unistrut...) and I go left to right, over the top.
   Half an hour to wind, a week to varnish.

I wound one coil on my 11" Logan but did it left to right over the top (have a reversing switch on the motor). Never did that again because there's no brake on the spincle and the thing takes several seconds to stop, particularly when I have to shift my left hand from controlling the wire to the motor switch.
