Default Making signs with Dremel

I made this sign using a Dremel and as you can see, this is my first real routing project. Now that I am at the point of sanding the letters, I am looking for any suggestions as to how to sand inside the letters. I was told to get a dowel and attach sand paper to it and use it that way, but honestly, it seems like it would take for ever to do that way. I am inexperienced in making things like this, but I am thinking of adding flames or a dragon to either side.
So..floor is open...please let me know what I can do to make this sign a success. I am well versed in other things, which I will post in another area..Show and Tell?
One more thing..I have a Ryobi full size router and honestly, it scares the hell out of me. I want to make another sign using it, but since I moved to Tacoma, I can't seem to find anyone that would be able to mentor.
Thank you in advance.

I'm west of Olympia. david_de's is in Olympia. You're in Everett. Maybe this summer we should have a Barbecue or something?
