Also like torches, buttons can be placed to a side of a chest, dispenser, crafting table, or furnace in the same fashion. This is done by placing a solid block above the area the button will attach to, and right clicking it on the bottom with a button in hand. The button can't attach to the top or bottom of blocks, and will relocate to an available space.
When used with redstone, it can activate mechanism-related items, such as doors, pistons or TNT. When pressed, it will send a short pulse of power (lasting approximately 1.0 seconds, or 10 ticks) to any redstone powered item.
Inside Snapshot 12w34a, a Wood variation of the regular button was added, and is created by placing a Wood Plank anywhere in the Crafting Grid.
