Working with tube drawings

Hello, I am new to Solidworks and 3D, so I am looking for some mentoring. I can make basic drawings as long as they are square based, but our business is all tube related. So I have struggled to understand how to add holes and shapes on the OD of tubes. I have accidently managed a couple times but even if I get them there they are usually in the wrong location. I haven't found a good lesson to show much with tubes. I can draw the basic tube with chamfers and such but when it comes to making holes, tapping holes etc. on the OD that is where I struggle.

If anyone has something that can help this novice out, that would be great and much appreciated.

Thank you,
