Hackers Help: How to secure LINNMON + ALEX?

Hi colleagues, I need to secure a good firm and nice looking connection between a Linnmon top and an Alex drawer unit for my home desk.

As you probably know, Linnmon top is “almost” empty inside (is full with a paper “homecomb”) and does not have enough strength to use screws (except on corners).

IKEA version of the desk is quite loose and the top only sits over Alex. Any wrong move and your desk is not a desk any more.

And of course I would like that the connection will be nice looking too.

Thank you,
