Considering I've put my SC846 on a LACK before the much better build quality of the Alex would hold up to anything reasonable.
I've sat on mine before.

Are you putting your computer in the drawer?

I'm using mine as a "leg" for a desk, but I just hit mine a bunch of times and while it does wobble it's nothing too concerning.
If you're really scared, use some wood glue while you're assembling.
That's the biggest weak point for this type of flat pack furniture. Gluing it will make it much sturdier.
Also the back part which is usually that thin veneer is actually a "full" panel which definitely makes it stronger.

EDIT: Oh and when I say "leg" it's not actually bolted together. It's just "floating".
It doesn't go anywhere since the other side is actual legs and the Alex is heavy enough to stay where it is.

Great idea. Gonna disamble tomorrow and apply some wood glue.
