I don't know that it's all that difficult to do this as you go. Once you
have a guide, quickly drawing lines along the guide is easy, since they
snap to the guide. You could also save horizontal and vertical marks to
the Scrapbook and paste where desired. Setting up a line style makes it
easy to apply a set of parameters to any line you make.

Manage Guides can help with some automated positioning of guides.

This is also something which could be scriptable.
