    I would say it has been altered. The bottom appears to have 6 slots and the top has 5. It looks as though they did a good job of refinishing though.

    Yes, I agree on both counts & kind of like that it's customized. Just finished second coat of a walnut stain on it which came out pretty good, considering the shape it was in when I got it.

    Looks to me like it was most likely dropped and split along the grain. The prior owner may have sanded the broken edges smooth after that to keep using it. Originally it was round on top and bottom. The important thing is that you like it.

    Yes, and like it even more knowing that it didn't look quite like this originally. Has character now :)
