A few things,
What are you drilling with?
Where do you want the holes?

A basic jig usually has a bracket of some kind that holds either a hand drill or router motor. These are usually set to drill at spindle height.
Do a google image search for "router jig for lathe" and you'll see many configurations that should get you started.

+1 on Ed's comment. Also, Oneway makes a drilling jig. Since you prefer to make one, you may be able to use it as a "template" for a Allan-made version.
