Create a new database and set up both connections in the connections section of the config/database.php file, then run the db:migrate console command passing two parameters:

php artisan db:migrate --schema-from=foo --schema-to=bar

php artisan db:migrate --schema-from=foo --schema-to=bar --tables=table1 --tables=table2 --tables=table3
