I suggest you consider using MonoMac.  Which means you will not use WinForms
for the Mac app.  Instead you will use native Mac tools to create the UI.
 It is more work but the UI will be native on Mac.  Yes the learning curve
is higher but that is still probably less than the frustration of a
non-standard Mac application.
