1. Generate SQL Create statement of 1st table.
2. Replace table name in the quey
3. Run it to create 2nd table
4. Run import data to transfer data from table 1 to table 2

SELECT * INTO #Temptable
FROM YourOriginalTable

Is this what you need to accomplish?

Run the above code

SELECT * INTO <New Table Name>
FROM <Original Table>

it will work.

It depends how temporary table is temporary for you :)) # is per session.
vs1784's style is creating table physically (or maybe a temporary table but in a formal way of creating it)

If you need a physical table that you can see from the Table list you could do something like this:
SELECT * INTO TempTableFromOrig
FROM YourOriginalTable
