Oak gall. It's a kitchen/house for some tiny critters. Not real harmful to the tree.

That's the tree it came from. Is it an overcup acorn tree?

Thanks folks. I grew up outside and don't recall ever seeing one of these. I need to brush up on my tree ID also. So rounded leaf ends means the white oak family? I thought post oak was in the red oak family.

Nope, post oak is in the white oak group. No bristles on the tips of the leaf lobes. A post oak tree looks a lot like a white oak bark-wise. The leaves are similar, but a lot of post oak leaves have the two big opposite lobes that give them that "cross shape." Also, post oak leaves are thicker than white oak leaves, and are pubescent (fuzzy) on the underside, while white oak leaves are smooth on the underside.

Post oak is excellent meat-smoking wood.
