Since you already have it, why not give it a try. But it may require extra effort to keep clean. Throwing newspapers away seems to me to be lots easier than washing glass. Please let us know how it works out.

Make sure you have good pecans, ones that are slightly moist when you cut off a small sliver. Also, don't give her a large piece to carry off. We have some pecans from last year that are very dry and Amanda won't eat them though she usually will do almost anything to get a pecan piece.
