Merge Columns from Multiple Tables

I have a data model with multiple sources. These sources all have the same field names. I'm needing to create a new table that merges certain columns of interest into one. Here is a simplified example of what I mean:

 

Table1

colorheightweight
blue6 ft125 lbs
green1 ft600 lbs

 

Table2

colorheightweight
yellow5 ft200 lbs
purple12 ft4 lbs

 

Table3

colorheightweight
orange7 ft3 lbs
black8 ft12 lbs

 

New_Table

colorweight
blue125 lbs
green600 lbs
yellow200 lbs
purple4 lbs
orange3 lbs
black12 lbs

 

I've tried using Merge Queries in Power Query Editor, but as far as I can tell this only merges two tables. What I need is to be able to extract columns from multiple tables to show in a combined new table. Is this possible?

You need to be using Append Queries. You can combine multiple tables and it should give you exactly what you want!
