Hi Chris, to add custom tables in the $wpdb object I did in this way

add_action( 'init', 'register_custom_table', 1 );
add_action( 'switch_blog', 'register_custom_table' ); // for multisite

function register_custom_table() {
    global $wpdb;
    $wpdb->custom_tablename = $wpdb->prefix . 'custom_tablename';
